Here is the thing about holidays: we want to rush. We are so busy with shopping, cooking, gifts and hosting that we don’t always step back and enjoy the moment.

Consider these hasselback sweet potatoes your moment. No matter how hard you try, you cannot rush perfection…or potatoes.

They need time to cook in the oven so if you are looking for a quick option, try this roasted asparagus. If you are looking for a delicious striking and mouthwatering option, make sure you preheat the oven and give it the hour that it needs to oven roast properly. Now you cant do it on this recipe, but its awesome to learn microwave sweet potatoes so you can enjoy them anytime.

Cooking Tips: This takes about 10 minutes to put together and 50-60 minutes to bake. If you put this on a baking sheet (not a stone) I’d line it with foil. This is a sugar+butter combo which typically means it burns when not on the potatoes.
