Baked Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potatoes! ~ sweet potato fries, pie and of course covered in butter, sugar, cinnamon and mini marshmallows!!

Of course I don't eat them like that very often, I'd have and even bigger bubble butt than I already do.

So another way I like to have them is simply baked plain with a touch of salt.

I buy the biggest ones I can find, cut them into halfs or thirds and bake them covered with foil at 400 for about 1 hour.
I like to make enough to last me a couple of meals.

Look at that color! Beautiful, right?

I like to eat them as a side to a main dish or just by themselves. Sometimes, I sprinkle a little cinnamon, or a drizzle of honey or agave nectar.
And since I bake a few at a time, I refridgerate the remainder and all I have to do the next day or so, is heat and eat.
