Yesterday, I was telling my friend how I had some last minute shopping to do for Thanksgiving. She freaked out, “Last minute? I haven’t even started shopping yet!” Okay, so I’m done with my food shopping (except for some oops, I ran out of this or that…) and I’m busy with cooking and baking.

I am happy to be hosting the big meal this year, because well, I am rather fond of my own cooking! But for those of you who haven’t quite finished your menu or your shopping, I have a Hasselback Sweet Potato recipe for you.

If you haven’t tried Hasselback potatoes, you are missing out. Basically, it is a whole potato that is thinly sliced like an accordion, and then baked. Named after the Stockholm restaurant, Restaurant Hasselbacken, where it was first served, this dish has taken the foodie world by storm.

It can be stuffed with all sorts of goodies, like cheese and bacon. And what’s good for the Russet Potato is good for the Sweet Potato.

I am not a fan of a lot of sugar in my meal, so I prefer my sweet potato on the savory side. As I have shared with you before, I am a brand ambassador with Sun-Maid Raisins. So, I added a delicious topping of caramelized onions, pecans and raisins for my Hasselback Sweet Potatoes.

All the flavors of fall, wrapped in a beautiful spud.
