      HI Lee, I don’t actually have a microwave but also I feel they dry out the potato. Glad you love sweet potatoes too, they are the best!!

  1. I microwave my sweet potatoes and they are not dry at all. After they are done I open them and add 1 TBSP of almond butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum! Sometimes I add Stevia, coconut oil or walnuts. I never get tired of them.
