DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes; pat dry.
  • To bake the sweet potatoes, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place pricked potatoes on a foil-lined baking pan to catch any juices that leak, then into the preheated oven and cook for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are fully cooked and tender, up to 1 hour.
  • To cook the sweet potatoes more quickly, carefully prick each sweet potato about 6 times, place in microwave oven on a paper towel and cook on High 15 to 17 minutes, or until a knife is easily inserted into center of potatoes.
  • When cool enough to handle, remove skin and any dark spots from potatoes. In a medium bowl, mash potatoes with butter and season with salt and pepper. Stir in sour cream and scallions until well mixed. Serve immediately sprinkled with reserved green onions on top.
