  • Use a blender or a food processor to easily crumble up the topping ingredients. You only have to pulse a few times.

  • When you are buying the sweet potatoes from the produce section, choose the skinny longer sweet potatoes. Also, try to find sweet potatoes that are as similar in shape as possible so the baking time cooks all of the potatoes evenly.

  • Add the potatoes to the baking dish after you add the glazed mixture to the baking sheet flesh side down.
