It’s that time of year when the air gets crisp and we start craving all the tastes of fall: cinnamon, maple, nuts and, of course, sweet potatoes. So let’s put them together! We have the perfect dish to do it, too: Hasselback Maple Pecan Sweet Potatoes.
The hasselback method is one of our favorites – remember our Smoky Hasselback Potatoes, Hasselback Chicken and Easy Hasselback Baked Apples?! – and it’s the perfect way of getting all that flavor mixed in with the delicious orange spud. Plus, the slicing and baking method gives the sweet potatoes a fantastic combination of creamy and crispy that’s the epitome of fall food. We can’t praise this one enough, so let’s stop talking and start cooking! Watch us make it, then read on for the recipe.
