Bake for 50 minutes, or until tender.
Remove sheet. Set oven to broil.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 10 seconds, or until melted.

HG Tip: When slicing the sweet potato, place it between two chopsticks on the cutting board. This will prevent you from slicing through to the bottom. Check out this how-to photo!
