Expert Tips

  • To cut sweet potatoes Hasselback-style, place a wooden spoon lengthwise against sweet potato. Hold one side of sweet potato and use a long, serrated knife to make thin cuts in one half of the potato, leaving bottom 1/4 to 1/2 inch intact. Turn; make thin cuts in other side. The spoon’s handle will stop the knife and help prevent slicing through the entire sweet potato.
  • If your sweet potatoes are very thick, microwave an additional 2 minutes.
