This year I was looking for a different way to prepare sweet potatoes when I stumbled upon this recipe for hasselback sweet potatoes from My Recession Kitchen. Slices of sweet potato are filled with butter, maple syrup, spices, nuts and dried fruit- it's practically a dessert. This sweet side dish is a must-have this Thanksgiving.
Recipe from My Recession Kitchen
2 sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons Earth Balance butter substitute, chopped in little pieces (I used butter)
2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup peeled and finely diced apple
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt
