Hasselback Sweet Potatoes With Smoked Salt

image

These were a huge hit with the boys over the weekend, they managed to polish off a kilo of sweet potatoes all by themselves!

Smoked salt isn’t the easiest of things to come by so salt flakes or roughly crushed sea salt works beautifully too.

Ingredients

1.5kg small sweet potatoes, around 9-10, skin lightly scrubbed to remove any dirt.

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons smoked salt flakes

freshly ground pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade. Line two baking trays with baking parchment.

Take a potato and begin to slice into 3mm slices without cutting all the way through. If you do cut through, don’t worry, they will still taste fab!

Place the cut potato on a tray and repeat with the remaining potatoes.

Drizzle a little oil over the top of each potato and then rub all over with your hands.

Grind over a little pepper and then sprinkle over the salt.

Pop in the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes, basting a couple of times to help crisp the edges up and encourage the potatoes to open up.
