Notes

You can also use red potatoes instead of sweet potatoes.

You can also wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil to fasten the baking process.

To make this dish exciting and vibrant, top it up with a variety of ingredients. I love a baked sweet potato with red beans and feta. It is very filling and tasteful. However, you can choose from a variety of different ingredients. For instance, top it up with salsa or avocado slices. You can also pair it with asparagus.

Lastly, to make the dish creamy, use sour cream or low-fat Greek yogurt. Whatever you choose to pair the baked sweet potatoes with, the end result is going to be very satisfying and tasteful.
