Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons dark-brown sugar

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and set aside. Rub potatoes with vegetable oil, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the oven until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a knife, 40 to 45 minutes.

  2. Slit potatoes open lengthwise, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with a generous dollop of sour cream, sprinkle with dark-brown sugar, and serve immediately.
