Hasselback Sweet Potato

This is a fun winter side dish that I made complicated. You read my blog, you know. It’s sweet , savory, herbal, salty, and spicy. All your tastebuds will get involved. I hope you like it.

4 medium sweet potatoes
6 strips of bacon (I used duck bacon)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Preheat oven to 425.

In a good nonstick skillet, cook bacon to 3/4 done (not crispy) then cut in small pieces.

Place a pencil on each side of the potato and cut 1/4 inch slices down to the pencil (so you don’t cut all the way through).

Place on a lined backing sheet.

Mix maple syrup, thyme, and cayenne in a bowl.

Drizzle melted butter over potatoes, then the drizzle maple syrup mixture.

Add salt and bacon.

Bake for 60-70 minutes.
