Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Scrub potatoes clean and set aside. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Combine Ghee, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic in a small dish. I used a garlic press to crush the garlic right into the dish. Stir until well combined.
  2. Grab a pair of chopsticks and place one on either side of a potato. Use a knife to cut 1/4" slices 2/3 of the way down the potato. The chopsticks will help act as guides and prevent you from slicing the potato all the way. Once the potatoes are sliced, transfer to baking sheet.
  3. Divide the Ghee mixture up among the four potatoes and use your hands to rub it in. Try to get as much as possible into the slices without ripping or breaking the potato apart. Don't bother to rub the bottom, just focus on the upper 2/3 where the slices are and the top.
  4. Bake for 50 minutes, serve and Enjoy!

      I made this for one large sweet potato tonight. Baked for one hour. It was good. I used the recipe for 2 servings, but will be using less garlic next time (personal preference). One tip to pass along: I set my sweet potato on a thick wooden cutting board. After I had cut it into 1/4″ slices, I let part of it “hang” over the cutting board edge so I could push the mixture between the slices. It worked well to carefully open up the sweet potato!
