    Directions

    1. Poke holes all over the sweet potatoes with a fork, then place them on a large microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes are very fork-tender. Carefully remove the plate from the microwave and allow the sweet potatoes to cool for about 15 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Microwave in batches if necessary.
    2. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
    3. Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
