Step #3: Slice Potatoes

Place potato between chopsticks or wooden spoons. Carefully cut 1/8 inch slices, about ¾ of the way through the potato. The chopsticks will keep you from slicing all the way through. Repeat with the other potato.

Step #4: Bake Time

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then place potatoes on sheet. Pour butter mixture over sweet potatoes, and bake for about 45 minutes.

Step #5: Serve It Up

Carefully remove from oven, season with more salt and pepper, and enjoy!
