  • 1 medium sweet potato

  1. Step 1: Scrub the sweet potato to remove any dirt. Keep the peel on. Pierce it in several places with a fork. The fork marks should pierce the peel.
  2. Step 2: Wrap the sweet potato in a paper towel and microwave it on high for 2 minutes. Flip it over and microwave for another 2 minutes. Give it a little squeeze. If the potato is still firm, continue microwaving it in 1 minute intervals. The exact timing here will depend on your microwave wattage and the size of the potato. Once it is fork-tender, carefully unwrap it and allow it to cool. It will be hot, so handle carefully.
  3. Serve: Slice it open and let any steam escape. Grab a fork and enjoy.
