Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

What Does Hasselback Mean?

Hasselback is a term for potatoes, or any vegetable, sliced into a fan-like shape.  You'll cit the sweet potato into thin slices, but not going all the way through.  As it bakes, it opens up like a fan so that the honey butter soaks into all of the crevices..

Prepare the Potatoes

Slice the sweet potatoes into 1/8-inch slices widthwise, stopping 1/2 inch from the bottom of the potato so you don’t cut all the way through.

Make the Honey Butter

Melt the butter, and add the honey, thyme, salt and pepper.

Brush and Bake

Brush the potatoes with half of the honey butter. Bake the sweet potatoes at 425°F for 30 minutes.

Fan Out and Brush Again

Remove from the oven and carefully fan out the slices. Brush the potatoes with the remaining honey butter. 

Finish Baking

Bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, until the inside is soft and the edges are crispy. Enjoy!
