How to lớn Bake Sweet Potatoes

For a long time, I thought I didn’t like sweet potatoes. When I was growing up, I only ever had them in casserole form, smothered in marshmallows và brown sugar. Turns out, I love sweet potatoes, but I have to prepare them the right way! I like mine puffy, with caramelized edges và a crispy skin. Here’s how I make them:

Preheat the oven khổng lồ 425°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.Use a fork khổng lồ poke holes into the sweet potatoes, and set them on the baking sheet.Roast for 40 khổng lồ 50 minutes, or until the skin has puffed up and you can easily pierce them with a fork.

The most important thing to lưu ý here is that I DON’T wrap them in foil.
