How to Bake a Sweet Potato in a Convection Toaster Oven

A convection toaster oven circulates heat around the food to decrease cooking time and use less energy than a regular oven. Baking sweet potatoes in the convection toaster oven takes about 1/3 less time than in a conventional oven, allowing you to enjoy the lower-calorie potato more often. A 3 1/2-oz. sweet potato contains about 141 calories, twice the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A and 42 percent of the recommended amount of vitamin C.

Step 1

Lower the baking rack inside your convection toaster oven to the lowest position. This gives you more room for the sweet potatoes.

Step 2

Preheat the convection toaster oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit on the convection setting.

Step 3

Scrub the sweet potatoes with a soft bristled nylon scrub brush under running water to remove the dirt from the potato.

Step 4

Piece the skin of the sweet potatoes with a fork. Poke each potato six or seven times around the exterior.

Step 5

Place the potatoes on the convection toaster’s baking rack. Bake the sweet potatoes for 45 to 60 minutes, or until the potato feels tender when you piece it with a sharp steak knife.
