These Hasselback sweet potatoes are so beautifully plated that you will impress anyone you serve them to, including yourself.

How to Make Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Yogurt Sauce


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Onto a cutting board, place a potato in between 2 long skewers or chopsticks. Cut thin slices into the potato, making sure not to go all the way through so the bottom remains intact. Repeat with rest of the potatoes.
  2. 2. Place potatoes on a baking sheet and evenly coat them with olive oil. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. A fork should easily go through the potato when it’s done baking.
  3. 3. Meanwhile, combine yogurt sauce ingredients into a bowl, mix well and refrigerate.
  4. 4. Once potatoes are cooked through, top with sauce, black beans, corn and cotija cheese (if using). Garnish with chopped cilantro.
