Health Benefits of Sweet Potato

  • Sweet potatoes are good for your digestion, because they contain not one but two kinds of fiber. Neither soluble nor insoluble fiber can be found in sweet potatoes. The human body cannot digest either type, so instead of breaking down as they pass through the digestive tract, these fibers travel along intact, benefitting your gut.
  • Sweet potatoes are also a good source of antioxidants, in addition to vitamins and minerals. Orange and purple sweet potatoes are especially high in antioxidants, which protect your body from free radicals, unstable molecules that damage DNA, cause inflammation, and have been linked to chronic and serious health conditions, such as cancer and heart disease. In basic terms, free radicals accelerate the overall aging process. This means that just about any source of antioxidants is a good addition to your diet.
  • Boosting immunity 124 g serving of sweet potato provides 12.8 mg of vitamin C. Current guidelines recommend a daily intake of 75 mg of vitamin C for adult women and 90 mg for adult men.
  • Protecting eye health . After the age of 18, the Dietary Guidelines recommend an intake of 700 mg of vitamin A per day for women and 900 mg per day for men. Vitamin A is important for protecting eye health.
  • Reducing the risk of cancer. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene . This is a plant pigment that acts as a powerful antioxidant in the body. Beta-carotene is also a provitamin.

Toaster Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes

Here’s a simple recipe for Toaster Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes…

…no need to heat up your entire house when you can use your toaster oven!

  • (approximately 8 ounces each, 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil (such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil or canola oil)

Instructions To Make Toaster Oven Baked Sweet Potato

  • Preheat the toaster oven to 400°F on the “Bake” setting with the cooking rack in the lowest position.
  • Toaster oven baking sheets should be lined with a rack that can be used in the oven.
  • Wash the sweet potatoes, scrub the skin well, and then dry them completely with a kitchen towel. Each sweet potato should be stabbed a few times with a sharp knife or fork, rubbed with oil and placed on the rack in the prepared baking sheet.
  • For medium potatoes, bake until a knife slides easily into the sides, about 45 to 55 minutes.
  • Let the sweet potatoes rest for five to ten minutes before handling; they will be hot. Slice a line across the top of the sweet potatoes, push the edges to the center, and fluff the interior with a fork.

And this is how you do it…

How to Bake Sweet Potatoes In A Toaster Oven

  • Set the toaster oven’s cooking rack to the lowest position and heat it to 400°F on the “Bake” setting.
  • A rimmed baking sheet in your toaster oven should be flat and have a rack in it that is oven-safe.
  • Pick up a sweet potato next.
  • Above are sweet potatoes from Costco, so they were 16 ounces each! Yours shouldn’t be so beastly unless you share it with my husband Tim.
  • Whether small (up to 7 ounces), medium (8 to 12 ounces) or large (up to 16 ounces), any size spuds are perfect.
  • Straight from the farmers market or grocery store, sweet potatoes can look pretty gnarly due to caked-on dirt and other oddities. When you’re ready to bake them, rinse and scrub your potatoes in the sink before storing them in a cool, dry place (not your fridge).
  • Dry each sweet potato well with a kitchen towel, then stab it once or twice on each side with a fork or sharp knife.
  • Stabbing is optional for some people. To date, we haven’t had to clean an exploding sweet potato off our toaster oven so we err on the side of caution.
  • After the potatoes are rubbed with oil, they should be placed on the prepared baking rack or pan.
  • Put the pan in your preheated toaster oven and bake the sweet potatoes until a knife slides easily into their sides, about 40 minutes to an hour, depending on their size.

Bake Them Your Way

  • For baking sweet potatoes, there are hundreds of time and temperature combinations that work just fine.
  • It’s pretty hard to make them wrong, so don’t worry.
  • This way works for us, but your go-to way should be based on what works best for you and your little oven.
  • If you think 400 is too high, lower the temperature to 350 or even 300. Those spuds will taste fantastic and you’ll have less of a burning sap problem too.
  • Just remember, the lower the temperature the longer it will take.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are ready let them rest for a few minutes before handling.
  • Slice a line across the top of each one, push the edges towards the center to puff them up and use a fork to fluff the interiors.

What About Convection Toaster Ovens

We’ve baked sweet potatoes a few times in our…

…Breville Smart Oven Pro (BOV845BSS) with the temperature reduced…

…to 375°F and convection fan on. Each time it took about 40 to 45 minutes…

…to cook sweet potatoes weighing between 7 and 8 ounces.

So, they didn’t bake any faster than a conventional toaster oven though…

…they did seem a little creamier. During baking, we needed to flip the potatoes…

…halfway through the cook time as the top of the sweet potatoes…

…were over-browning. Because of this, we’d stick with a temperature…

…of 375°F or lower when using the convection setting or a convection toaster oven.

Sum Up

Sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest vegetables around…

…because they are full of vitamins and fiber. You can bake or roast them…

…for a tasty meal or snack, and we’re sharing how to make them…

…in your toaster oven. Sweet potatoes take a long time to make…

…(unless you slice them in half) but after just one bite…

…you’ll know it was worth the wait.
