It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE sweet potatoes. I could eat them every day. Luckily, each of my four children love them as well. Sadly, my husband doesn’t! He is so great and loves all the millions of pounds of vegetables I make him eat, but the one thing he doesn’t like – sweet potatoes! It’s absurd. I have tried every way I can think of to get him to like them. Nothing. I will not give up, but for now I try to make him “regular” potatoes along side our “orange potatoes.” It works. Today, however, he wasn’t here for lunch so I decided to get fancy and make these Hasselback Sweet Potatoes.
They were a hit. When my girls came to the table one of them proclaimed, “Oooo potato cookies!” and proceeded to devour an entire potato by herself (they were BIG). Success. I have seen many varieties of these on the interweb and I liked mine fine just plain! Maybe one day we’ll get more adventurous, but I wanted to post the basic idea and let you run wild from there. These also work with good ol’ white potatoes too!
