Easy 6-ingredient oven baked sweet potatoes with browned butter, bacon and herbs make for the best baked sweet potato recipe ever. This method for how to bake sweet potatoes will be your new favorite.
Poke holes all over the sweet potatoes with a fork. Place on baking sheet and cook 45-60 minutes, depending on how large your potatoes are.
While the potatoes are cooking, brown the butter. Place 4 tablespoons in a small pot over low heat until it bubbles. Wait a few minutes for it to start foaming and then it will quickly turn brown. Once it's reached a nice golden brown color, strain the butter through a mesh sieve to remove the milk solids (this is optional, just if you are avoiding lactose and/or what to keep these paleo). Stir in the nutmeg, paprika, and salt and set aside.
Once the sweet potatoes are done, slice them down the middle and fluff the insides a bit. Top with the bacon, herbs, and browned butter. You may also want to add another pinch of sea salt to taste.
