How long does it take to bake sweet potatoes in the oven, at what temperture? and are they good to bake in the microwave if so, for how long?
Cooking times for all potatoes, including sweet potatoes will vary depending on the size of the potato. Generally, they are baked in the oven at 350 degrees, and a medium potato (about 3 inches long) will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. You can test for doneness by inserting a fork in the potato. It is done when the fork slips into the potato easily. Potatoes can also be cooked in the microwave. Again, cooking times will vary depending on the size of the potato and the wattage of the microwave. A medium potato can take about 8-12 minutes in the microwave.
