Sliced Baked Sweet Potatoes

These Sliced Baked Sweet Potatoes were a fun and delicious accompaniment to the Ham dinner we had for Easter.  Each potato is an individual serving and offers the pre-cut perfection of scalloped potatoes without the added fat and calories.

Prep Time:  15 minutes
Cooking Time:  about 45 minutes
Servings:  4


4 medium sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
2 to 3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs or 2 teaspoons of dried herbs
      I used a fresh blend of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
3 tablespoons grated sharp cheddar cheese
1-1/2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

  • Peel potatoes and rinse them.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Cut potatoes into thin slices but not all the way through.
  • Put potatoes in a baking dish.  Fan them slightly.
  • Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with butter.  
  • Sprinkle with herbs.
  • Bake potatoes for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven.  Sprinkle with cheeses.
  • Bake potatoes for another 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned, cheeses are melted and potatoes are soft inside.  Check with a fork.

I found the original recipe in a box of cookbooks handed down to me from my Mother-In-Law. It was printed on a a recipe card and was being used as a book mark.
