Easy Lemon Garlic Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

My feelings about these Garlic Hasselback Sweet Potatoes may be a bit too much to handle. But they are the perfect side dish for any meal. I have been on top of my meal-prep game this month and these have been a constant every week. They are not only delicious and versatile, but they are surprisingly easy to prepare.

Many people shy away from making hasselback potatoes because they think it is super complicated. But, it is honestly as easy as slicing the potatoes half way through and baking them. That’s it!

Whenever I make lemon-garlic Hassel back sweet potatoes, I always make sure I have a couple tablespoons of melted ghee and fresh herbs for basting the potatoes. This will give the potatoes a rich buttery flavor and there is nothing better than that.

These potatoes will pair perfectly with my delicious Creamy Coconut Mushroom Chicken.
