hasselback sweet potatoes

Happy Friday! 🙂 I am so glad it’s the weekend. I am sipping on some lovely white wine as I type up this post. 😉 If you have gone on Pinterest lately you know that hasselback potatoes are a thing now. Of course I had to give them a try……….I found this great recipe from the blog A Bachelor and His Grill.  I modified it to suit my taste, but what a great idea to ad feta and pistachios, yummmmm! I highly recommend you try this recipe as it is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Whatever your up to this weekend, I hope it is filled with fun, food and family.
