Wash the sweet potato well, and cut in half. Cover in plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes.
Remove the wrap, cover in aluminum foil, and bake in the toaster oven for 15 minutes. Try skewering it, and if it's softened, it's complete.
Mmm... enjoy the wonderful smell of baked sweet potato. Hot and sweet!
Story Behind this Recipe
A method for making baked sweet potato using the microwave and the oven. I wondered if I could shorten the time even more, so I tried using my powerful toaster and it came out deliciously.
Since the heating time is comparatively short I call this "soft & fluffy". It's still plenty sweet and delicious. If you like sticky sweet potatoes, check out my other recipe, "Time-Saving Recipe! Sticky & Sweet Baked Sweet Potatoes" (Recipe ID: 2110533).
