Hasselback Sweet Potatoes are the perfect way to serve sweet potatoes because the brown sugar pecan glaze that I use settles in all of the cracks which is so delicious.


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped pecans
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes well.
  3. Carefully, make slices across the sweet potatoes horizontally, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch apart, but don’t cut through the potato all the way. Go about 3/4 of the way down, so the sweet potato stays intact.
  4. Wrap each sweet potato in foil.
  5. Place the cut and wrapped sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and place them in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Mix together the butter, brown sugar, pecans, and salt.
  7. After the 30 minutes is up and the potatoes are soft, remove them from the oven and remove foil. Brush on the butter and brown sugar mixture, making sure to get it in all of the crevices.
  8. Place the sweet potatoes back into the oven for 5 minutes, remove, and serve!
