Recently, I have seen a bunch of photos and recipes for Hasselback Potatoes when I’ve been surfing around. I can completely see why they are popular – they’re very eye-catching. So, I wanted to try making Hasselbacks too, but of course with a twist. I decided to try using sweet potatoes, and this is what I came up with. I am really happy with this recipe. The sugar-cinnamon-butter is so flipping good with the teeniest little kick from cayenne. And the orange-cardamom sour cream goes perfectly. YUM!

Sweet Hasselback Potatoes with Orange Cardamom Cream

  • 3-4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 T light brown sugar
  • ⅛ t ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ t pure vanilla extract
  • pinch kosher salt
  • pinch fresh cracked pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • ½ c reduced fat sour cream
  • zest of an orange
  • ⅛ t cardamom

Heat oven to 425F.

Rub the outside of the potatoes lightly with a little olive oil. With a sharp knife, carefully cut the slices without cutting all the way through. Bake at 425F for 50-60 minutes until potatoes are cooked through and soft inside, crispy outside. Halfway through the cook time, use a fork to gently fan the slices a bit so they separate.

While potatoes are cooking, combine the butter, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper, in a small bowl.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and spoon on the butter mixture, gently working it in between the slices of potato.

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, orange zest, and cardamom. Serve with the potatoes.

Here’s a hint – use a toothpick to hold the potato together if you accidentally slice all the way through. Just be sure to tell your guest it’s in there 🙂
