1. Scrub one sweet potato under water. Yes, my sink is full of dirty dishes. Every day...
2. Pierce the sweet potato several times with a fork
3. Next, wrap the potato in a wet paper towel. I ran the paper towel under water, rung it out, then wrapped the potato like a mummy. This helps keep the moisture in.
4. Cook the sweet potato for 2-3 minutes in your microwave, flip it over and cook another 2 minutes. The cooking time will depend on the power of your micro. I wouldn't go more than 6 or 7 minutes max. Mine was actually a little tough to cut in certain areas but overall it was delicious and ready to eat in minutes!
