Accordion Sweet Potatoes
Servings: 8 Prep 15 mins Microwave 3 mins Bake 400°F 30 mins to 40 mins


  • 4 7 - 8 ounces sweet potatoes (unpeeled)
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Rinse sweet potatoes to remove any dirt. Using a sharp knife, carefully make a series of 1/4-inch wide slices about 2/3rds of the way through the potatoes (do not slice all the way through.)

2. Place potatoes on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high (100% power) for 3 minutes. Brush the potatoes with oil. Transfer to a 2-quart rectangular baking dish.

3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pieces with the tines of a fork. Meanwhile, stir together the maple syrup, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon. Pour over potatoes as soon as they come out of the oven.
