Lone Star Steakhouse Baked Sweet Potato
By Todd Wilbur
Sweet potatoes are not related to the more common russet potatoes and are often confused with yams in the grocery store and on menus (the yam is actually starchier and less flavorful). Just be sure you're buying sweet potatoes when you get to the produce section—even the produce stockers get mixed up. Bake these up, and when you spoon on some butter and sprinkle cinnamon/sugar over the top, you've got a treat that tastes more like dessert than a side dish.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Rub a little oil on the skin of the sweet potatoes and bake them for 45 to 75 minutes (bigger sweet potatoes take longer to cook). When they are done, the outside will have darkened and the inside will be soft. You may see liquid from the sweet potato oozing out when it's close to done.
2. As the potatoes bake, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
3. To serve, slice a sweet potato down the center. Add two tablespoons of whipped butter, and sprinkle some cinnamon/sugar over the top.
Makes 4 servings.
