- 6 sweet potatoes you want to choose ones of approximately the same length and ones that are long and straight
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
Wash and dry your sweet potatoes. Using a sharp knife and starting from one end of the sweet potato, make slices about 1/8 inch wide, but make sure you do not cut all the way through. Cut about 3/4 of the way down for each slice. Repeat with all sweet potatoes.
Place sweet potatoes onto baking sheet. Lightly brush sweet potatoes with olive oil. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender.
While sweet potatoes are cooking, add maple syrup and butter to a small saucepan. Bring to low simmer and stir until butter is fully dissolved. Add in chopped pecans and stir to coat. Remove from heat.
Spoon sauce and pecans over cooked sweet potatoes. Lower oven to 350°F. Place potatoes back into the oven to cook for approximately 10 minutes. If desired, drizzle tops of sweet potatoes with additional maple syrup before serving. Serve warm.
