I love sweet potatoes, (also called yams)!!! They are my favorite vegetable! I like them best cooked simply, without all the marshmallows and brown sugar. I use the microwave to cook them, because it's so fast!
3 - 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 - 3 tablespoons butter, sliced
salt & pepper
about 1/4 cup milk
Place sweet potato cubes in a greased glass casserole dish. Add small slices of butter on top. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the milk. (The milk keeps the sweet potatoes from drying out.) Place lid or plastic wrap on top of the casserole dish. Cook on high in the microwave for 10 - 15 minutes, depending on your microwave.
