Parmesan Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze

Parmesan Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze

These sweet potatoes are sliced and roasted in the oven, then drizzled with balsamic and topped with parmesan and fresh herbs. They can be enjoyed as a side dish for eight, or as a meatless main for four people.My husband loves sweet potatoes (loaded with butter) but I prefer mine more on the savory side, such as this. I had this for lunch over some baby greens and felts satisfied, but this would be beautiful on your Thanksgiving table if you would like to serve this as a side.

Parmesan Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze

And speaking of Thanksgiving, I know the holidays can be a stressful time. Between traveling, extra calories being consumed and stress of having to take care of so many people, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

That’s why I find it’s so important to take care of myself during this time of year. In addition to making healthy and delicious food, I track my points on Weight Watchers and I hit the gym to work out any stress. It’s a guaranteed way to feel great, quickly.

Parmesan Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze

These sweet potatoes are sliced and roasted in the oven, then drizzled with balsamic and topped with parmesan and fresh herbs.

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, 7 oz each
  • 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 oz freshly grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped Italian parsley
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped thyme
  • 2 tbsp balsamic glaze, I used Delallo*

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. With a large, sharp knife, make ¼-inch slices down the length of each potato, cutting only 3/4 of the way through.
  3. In a small bowl, combine butter and olive oil.
  4. Place the potatoes in a medium mixing bowl and drizzle half of the the olive oil/butter mixture over the top of each potato, then toss to evenly coat.
  5. Place potatoes on a small baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until potatoes are tender inside and caramelized and crisp on the outside.
  7. Drizzle with remaining butter/oil and sprinkle with parmesan, herbs and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
