Baked Sweet Potato that Wasn’t

20 Jul

I was really looking forward to dinner tonight, as I had two sweet potatoes that needed to be used up.  After thinking about what I wanted to do with them all day, I decided on making baked sweet potatoes.  I’ve never made a baked sweet potato, let alone a regular baked potato.  I looked up a recipe and thought I memorized it in my head.

Well, I guess that wasn’t the case because almost two hours after they went into the over, the middles were still hard!  I set the oven 100 degrees cooler than what the recipe called for.  : (

I would have taken pictures, but I was so frustrated with the potatoes and myself for messing up such an easy recipe, I tossed them in the garbage like a hot potato!

But, this is what I had envisioned them to look like:

Basic Baked Sweet Potato

Picture of Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes Recipe

YUM!

So, the question for the evening is:

Question:  Do you make baked sweet potatoes?  If so what is your secret recipe?

 

I’ll be back tomorrow with the workout of the week and some eats from the past few day!  Have a great night!
