We prefer the more intense flavor that develops as the sweet potatoes bake in the oven. To save time, peel the potatoes and cut into cubes. Cook in the microwave in a small amount of water until the potatoes can be mashed easily with a fork. Preheat the oven to 400°, and continue with the recipe beginning with step 3.
