Homemade honey butter dresses up a basic sweet potato in this baked potato recipe.


  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 teaspoons Honey-Nutmeg Butter (see below)
  • For the Honey Butter: 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt



1. Wash and dry the sweet potato. Puncture a few times with a fork. Place sweet potato on paper towel on microwave-safe dish. Cook on high for 4-5 minutes, turning it over after 2 minutes and checking after another two.
2. While the potato is cooking, make the honey-nutmeg butter: Cream the butter with the honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt until slightly fluffy and even. Scrape into a small bowl and refrigerate until about 30 minutes before you're ready to use so it softens slightly.
