Hasselback Sweet Potato

Fanned Sweet Potatoes or Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

This works great with sweet potatoes or russet potatoes. This is a great recipe for entertaining or just for fun. My kids love these.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 5 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • chili powder
  • salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Cut off ends of potato. If potato does not stand up, slice a small piece off the bottom (horizontally).
  3. Place a pair of chopsticks on each side of the potato, parallel to the potato. Carefully, cut thin slices into the potato. If chopsticks are placed properly, the knife will not go all the way through as the blade will hit the chopstick first.
  4. Place garlic slices in between some of the potato slices. Drape onion slices on top. Drizzle a little olive oil on top and season with a sprinkling of chili powder and salt.
  5. Roast the potato until cooked through, about 50 minutes to an hour until tender. Baking time will depend on the size and thickness of your potato.
