    Most sweet potatoes you buy have instructions on the packet, but I guess micro them for 5 mins and check to see if you can run a knife thru easily

    May want to poke some holes in it w/ a knife first or you could have an exploding potato in a hot microwave

    I've never seen sweet potatoes in a packet..

    For the original poster, most micro's have potato button. Just stab it with a fork and press the button.

    Yep, you can buy the ones pre-wrapped but you dont get much out of them. I cook them like a potato as well.
