Baked Sweet Potatoes

baked sweet potatoes

Pair with sausage patties or another protein for a quick breakfast, or top with coconut milk, nutmeg and cinnamon for a sweet snack.

Makes 4 servings.
Approximate cooking time: 60 minutes


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • aluminum foil (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Quarter sweet potatoes and wrap in a large sheet of aluminum foil (or place in a ceramic baking dish with a lid).
  • Place in a middle rack in the oven, and bake for 40-60 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. NOTE: Be careful of the steam build up when unwrapping the aluminum foil!
  • Refrigerate leftovers for easy snacks and meals.

    This might be a dumb question but do you quarter them fully into pieces/chunks or quarter them & leave them whole?

    • Megan M – I’m really sorry, but I don’t think I understand your question. Could you clarify please?

  5. Reading mixed info- is a sweet potato allowed on paleo diet?
