Hasselback Sweet Potatoes are a new spin on an old classic. Trade your candied yams for this delicious side!

I’m pretty sure that every family includes some form of candied yams into their holiday spread, and opinions are divided on whether they’re actually good or not.

This recipe is a beautiful alternative for those who want something a little different that will still appeal to all demographics. Believe it or not, these still maintain a glorious sweetness without being overwhelming. And they are so pretty to look at!
