Tips  

It's easy to cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave. Pierce whole potatoes with a fork; place on microwavable paper towels. Microwave on High 9 to 11 minutes, or until tender. Cover; let stand 5 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise. Scoop out flesh into bowl; mash with fork and cool.
