  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place each sweet potato on a cutting board and line two chopsticks up along either side. Carefully slice the potato into 1/8-inch slices, cutting almost all the way down to the bottom but not all the way through. The chopsticks will help prevent you from cutting all the way through the potato.
  3. Rub the potatoes with the oil, coating the entire potato and getting down between some of the slices. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  4. After 40 minutes, remove the potatoes from the oven and fan out the slices. Brush the potatoes with maple syrup covering the surface and getting in between the slices. Sprinkle the potatoes with cinnamon and pecans. Return the potatoes to the oven and bake another 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
