Instructions Checklist
  • Wash sweet potatoes and prick several times all over with a fork.

  • Place in a microwave on top of a paper towel and cover with another paper towel. Cook on high for 5 minutes (may need more depending on strength of microwave and thickness of potato).

  • Turn the potatoes over and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove potatoes and test for softness. If not soft, cook for 1 to 2 minutes more. Wrap potatoes in aluminum foil and allow to cool, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Slice them open and add butter, honey, cinnamon, and salt. Mash the soft flesh with a fork.

Cook's Notes:

Baked potatoes are much better and deliver a much sweeter potato, in my honest opinion. But, they need at least an hour to cook. A well-cooked potato's flesh should come away easily from the skin.

You can use maple syrup instead of honey.
