What Gobles Gobble... simple side!

Ok so they're really the simplest of things but they're delicious sweet creamy and extremely good for you full of lots of good things the more colorful the fruit or vegetable the better it is for you and these are day glo! Steve and I love them so much and its a guilt free side dish (almost) cuz I serve it like a potato but its more like a vegetable... Baked sweet potatoes...

They're simple to make there's really only a few simple steps

1. Buy the potatoes we buy one per person but you could buy a big one and share.
2.Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F
3. Rinse your sweet potates and place them on a cookie sheet
4. Bake potatoes for one hour-90 min or until knife inserted goes in easily.
5. remove from oven and split the same as a baked potato.

We eat them with some butter and a drizzle of honey but they're just as delicious with some salt and pepper or experiment with your spice cabinet see how they taste with a pinch of curry powder or cinnamon...

Sweet Potatoes aren't just for holidays anymore.. but if you must have marshmallow once finished split open add a bit of butter a sprikle of brown sugar your desired amount of marshmallows and return to oven for 5 min...
