How To Make Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

Hasselback sweet potatoes are not that much different from its relative, the humble potato. If you are looking at your carb intake you might have found the sweet potato a pretty decent substitution.  These Hasselback Sweet Potatoes are even better than the original! 

First off, wash your sweet potatoes and preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  

With a sharp knife, carefully cut even thin slices through the sweet potatoes, stopping right at the bottom so that the slices are still attached. Don’t cut all the way through! 

Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Pesto Butter

Drizzle the sweet potatoes with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.  Into the oven they go until they are soft and roasted well. 

For the pesto butter simply add your store bought pesto (I always use pesto princess) to softened butter and mix it through. Smother the hasselback sweet potatoes with pesto butter once they come out of the oven and serve with your favourite roast.
