Hasselback sweet potatoes

Looking for a bit of a change from roast potatoes? These hasselback sweet potatoes with a touch of paprika are a funky and flavoursome accompaniment to turkey, ham, chicken or beef. 

You will need:

(serves 6)
  • 6 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 bunch coriander, roughly chopped
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

Simple steps:

  • Pre heat the oven to 230°C. Slice a small piece off the bottom of each potato creating a flat side to the potato. Turn the potato so the flat side is on the bottom then, using a sharp knife carefully slice ¾ of the way through the potato. Repeat this every ½ cm.
  • Mix the butter and paprika together in a small bowl and smear into the cracks of the potatoes then arrange onto an oven tray. Season well with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  • Cover with tin foil and roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the tin foil then return back to the oven for another 30-35 minutes.
  • Once cooked, spoon the sour cream over the top and sprinkle with fresh coriander and slices of chilli.
