Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes with Sesame Crust

recipe
We relied on the microwave for what it does best; heating small amounts of liquid. Here's another time-saver if you need your oven fo rthe turkey or a roast. Bake the sweet potatoes first. After the meat is done, glaze the potato wedges, and finish cooking them in the oven for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°.
