This is a really quick side that will work well on a weeknight or as part of a fancy meal. The flavor of roasted sweet potato and balsamic is quite addictive.
Hasselback Sweet Potatoes
- 1 large sweet potato peeled and cut in half (it doesn’t have to be as large as the one in the photo)
- Olive oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Score paper thin slices across the back of each potato half almost all the way through. Rub olive oil all over each half and over a foil lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and roast in an oven at 390 degrees until done, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven. Melt butter in a sauce pan and add balsamic. Cook over medium heat until sauce thickens then pour over potato halves. Serve immediately.
