Ingredients

  • 2 pounds of organic sweet potatoes peeled and cut into halves or quarters depending upon the size of each potato
  • 1/4 cup butter + 2 tablespoons divided
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • garlic powder to taste
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

  • For the parmesan cheese, I recommend buying an aged parmesan. Aged cheeses are supposed to have a lower lactose content than lesser aged varieties.
