When you bake a whole potato in the oven, there is a number one rule you need to follow: poke holes in the potato before placing it in the oven!!! The reason why you need to poke holes in the potato is to avoid a massive explosion to happen in your oven. You see, potatoes have liquid inside. When baked, they act as a pressure cooker: if you don't release the steam, it will explode. Trust me, you do not want to deal with the cleaning that comes with that. I suggest you use a fork to do the holes as it makes small holes that you can barely see. Poke them all around the potato and there you go, ready to bake.
This Purple Breakfast Sweet Potato is easy to put together whenever you are running late in the morning because your alarm didn't go off and the kids take their sweet time to get ready… Just bake the potato the night before and store it in the fridge. Place it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to warm up, add the almond butter and fruits on top, and you are on your way to a fabulous day.
