Hasselback Sweet Potatoes w/ Sage Butter
Here's your Monday morning boost of vitamin A.
These were on my Thanksgiving table.
I used small organic sweets, one per customer.
Remember not to cut all the way thru the potatoes, but only half way.
Place a potato securely on a cutting board. With a good quality, sharp knife, cut off the ends of each potato and make small cuts half way thru. You will get the hang of it after one or two.
You will get a sort of fan like, slinky potato.
Lay the potatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle w/ olive oil and kosher salt.
Bake at 350F for about 50 minutes until edges are crispy.
I picked some sage that was still left in my garden, and sauteed it for a minute or two w/ a lump of butter.
When the potatoes are done and still piping hot, pour the sage butter on top and serve.
These are so simple and so impressive!
PS What is the difference between sweet potatoes and yams anyway?
