Savoury and sweet flavours combine in a side dish, that just might be the main event. Recipe was made exclusively for Becel by Chef Matt Dean Pettit.

Ingredients List

  1. 4 medium sweet potatoes
  2. 4 Tbsp. (60 mL) Becel® Buttery Taste margarine*, melted
  3. 1 tsp. (5 mL) freshly ground nutmeg
  4. 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) dried sage
  5. 1/4 cup (60 mL) Manuka honey, slightly heated to soften
  6. Pinch each salt and pepper


1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Using a sharp knife, make crosswise cuts in each sweet potato, 1/8 to 1/4-in. (3 to 6 mm) apart, stopping about ¼ in. (6 mm) from the bottom. Your sweet potato should look like an accordion.

3. In a mixing bowl, combine melted Becel® Buttery Taste margarine* nutmeg, sage and honey.

4. Place sweet potatoes on parchment paper-lined baking tray. Season with salt and pepper. Using a pastry brush, brush honey mixture over the tops and into the grooves of each sweet potato. Reserve remaining honey mixture as glaze after baking.

5. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until sweet potatoes are soft and fully cooked through. Remove from the oven and brush sweet potatoes with the remaining honey mixture. Serve warm.
