How Long To Microwave A Sweet Potato?

You want to pick a sweet potato that looks like a bulb, has fat in the middle, and is not long and skinny. You should also pierce it all over with a potato nail or a fork so the pressure can release.

Next, we’re going to wrap it in a paper towel, place it on a microwave safe plate, and microwave it for five minutes, turning it over halfway through. Unwrap it, give it a few scores, and top it with sour cream.

Next we’re going to add Chives and salt, and bake the sweet potato in the microwave.
