Ingredients

Servings:
4
4
medium sweet potatoes
1/3 cup(s)
ghee, melted
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
chopped parsley, for garnish

Directions 10 steps | 70 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, shiny side down.

Step 2

Scrub the sweet potatoes.

Step 3

Cut a thin slice off the bottom of the sweet potato so the sweet potato does not wobble.

Step 4

Place the sweet potato, cut-side down, between two wooden chopsticks.

Step 5

Thinly slice potatoes until you reach the chopsticks. Repeat with remaining sweet potatoes.

Step 6

Place potatoes on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 7

Using a pastry brush, brush the sweet potatoes with the ghee, making sure to spread it between each slice.

Step 8

Season the sweet potatoes with salt and pepper.

Step 9

Bake the sweet potatoes for about 45-60 minutes, baking time will vary depending on the size of the potatoes. Halfway through baking, remove the potatoes from the oven and gently run a fork across the top of the sweet potatoes, separating the slices of the sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes should be fork-tender and crispy on the outside.

Step 10

Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy!


Notes:

  • You can change the sweet potato to a Yukon Gold potato if desired. Adjusting the baking time to the size of the potato.
  • For a savory spin, top the sweet potato with herbed butter before serving.
  • For a sweet spin, top the sweet potato with a drizzle of maple syrup and chopped toasted pecans.
