Did you know you can even cook a sweet potato in the microwave? Stab it a few times with a sharp knife, stick it on a plate, and cook for about 5 minutes, then flip over and cook for another 5. Wait a few minutes for it to cool, then cut it open and voila! Sweet potato! Top with some maple syrup and a pinch of brown sugar for the ultimate easy treat.
