Author: Trish Cowper
4small sweet potatoes
1/2 to 1teaspoonsaltuse more if using coarse salt
fresh ground black pepper
1/4cupSmoked Applewood Smoked Cheddarshredded
Heat oven to 350.
Scrub and dry sweet potatoes. Prick each potato all over with a fork or tip of a sharp knife (be careful!) and place potatoes on a dry cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake at 350 for about 60 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and yield when gently squeezed.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and turn the heat up in the oven to 400.
Using a fork, break the potatoes into three or four pieces each. Drizzle with olive oil, about a teaspoon on each potato. Sprinkle generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper and return potatoes to the oven for 15-20 minutes. They will crisp very slightly around the edges, their juices will begin to caramelize. Remove from oven and sprinkle hot potatoes with the shredded smoked cheddar. Serve.
