These potatoes are savory, sweet and cut in the impressive Swedish hasselback style. It’s a show-stopping side that’s dressed and ready to impress in melty Parmesan cheese. Plus, the cut of the potato allows for just enough herb butter to melt and infuse the potato with delicious, garlicky flavor. MORE+ LESS-

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil. Generously spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Place them cut-side down on cutting board. Cut sweet potatoes crosswise into 1/8-inch slices, leaving about 1/4 inch of bottom intact.
  • 3
    Arrange sweet potatoes on baking sheet, rounded side up. Brush tops of sweet potatoes with olive oil; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, then bake 35 to 40 minutes or until almost tender when pierced with a knife.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, garlic, sage, thyme and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat.
  • 5
    Remove sweet potatoes from oven. Brush butter mixture over potatoes, using fork to open slices slightly as you brush, making sure to get some of the butter mixture into each slice.
  • 6
    Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over tops of potatoes; continue baking 2 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking Vegetarian and Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian and gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • There’s a trick to cutting a potato hasselback-style without slicing all the way through the potato. Place wooden spoon or chopstick along both sides of the sweet potato to act as a barrier, then cut through the potato until the knife hits spoon or chopstick.
  • The reason for brushing the butter on the potatoes after they’ve cooked for a while is that it helps to keep the butter and garlic from burning.
