makes 8 sweet potato halves


  • 4 small sweet potatoes

  • 1/2 stick butter

  • 2 tsps chili flake

  • juice and zest of 1 lime

  • 2 tsps honey

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 serrano chili

  • 1 bunch sage

  • flaky sea salt


Preheat the oven to 425°F or C

Poke a shit ton of holes in your sweet potatoes and place on a tin-foil lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for at least 60 minutes, letting all the juices bubble out of the holes of the potatoes.

While the potatoes are baking, melt the butter over a medium heat. Continue to cook for about five minutes until the butter turns a light brown color.

Pour into a bowl and add the juice and zest of one lime, chili flake, honey, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Adjust the taste according to your preference.

When the potatoes are out of the oven, slice in half horizontally, top with butter, flaky sea salt, serrano slices, and sage.
