These parmesan baked sweet potatoes are sure to make any meal extra-special. The sweet potatoes are roasted in lots of butter with a hint of garlic and parmesan cheese that forms an out-of-this-world delicious parmesan crust on top.

2poundsof organic sweet potatoespeeled and cut into halves or quarters depending upon the size of each potato
1/4cupbutter + 2 tablespoonsdivided
1/4cupgrated parmesan cheese
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
pepper to taste
parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 ℉.
Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper over the butter.
Place potatoes cut side down in the seasoned butter. Brush potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, sprinkle with salt, and place in preheated oven.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Let them rest for 5 minutes. Gently lift each potato with a spatula and transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
For the parmesan cheese, I recommend buying an aged parmesan. Aged cheeses are supposed to have a lower lactose content than lesser aged varieties.
