Prepare your sweet potato by baking in the oven or microwaving.
For the oven: preheat your oven to 425F. Pierce your sweet potato 4-5 times and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the thickest part of the sweet potato is cooked through.
For the microwave: pierce your sweet potato 4-5 times. Place on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
