Ingredients of Hassel back Sweet Potatoes

  • 4 Medium Sweet Potatoes
  • 6 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt / Rock salt

How to Make Hassel back Sweet Potatoes

  • 1.Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • 2.Shave a thin sliver from one side of each potato to give it a flat surface to stand on while you slice it. Make thin slices into the potato about 1/16-inch thick, stopping before you cut all the way through. (Placing a chopstick on either side of the potato while you slice it can help stop the blade before it cuts all the way through.)
  • 3.Put each potato on a separate sheet of foil. Shape the foil around the potatoes to wrap them, but leave the tops open and exposed.
  • 4.Put the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • 5.Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat, swirling occasionally, until browned and nutty, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • 6.Stir in the brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Drizzle the butter mixture over the potatoes and pinch the foil together on top to seal the potato inside.
  • 7.Bake for 45 minutes, then let cool for a few moments. Remove the potatoes from the foil, put them on a serving platter and drizzle with the sauce leftover in each foil packet.
  • 8.Sprinkle some nuts while serving.
