I made this recipe on 10/30/13. I've had mashed and boiled potatoes.But never cooked in a microwave,so this intrigued me. But,this was a very nice change of pace way to make sweet potatoes. The recipe was followed as written,but my potato was small and the 10 minutes made it even smaller( NOTE TO SELF: shorten cooking time if using smaller potatoes :) )Thank you for a very good recipe.

I made this for the DM using a smallish sweet potato which was cook in 7 minutes in a 900W microwave oven then I completed the halving of the potato and scored but then put the butter then the honey on and didn't worry about putting it back in the oven and the DM thoroughly enjoyed, something I'm sure I will make again for it is just so simple but with lovely flavours. Thank you Derf, made for All You Can Cook Buffet tag game special.
