    1. Preheat the KitchenAid® Gas Convection Slide-In Range to 400°F and arrange the rack in the middle of the oven.
    2. Slice sweet potatoes to approximately 1/8″ thick in the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Food Processor using the ExactSlice™ System. Toss potatoes with butter, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange sliced potatoes vertically in concentric circles in a KitchenAid® Casserole Dish. Cover and roast for 30 minutes.
    3. While the potatoes bake, make the spiced candied hazelnuts. Coarsely chop the hazelnuts with the Chef Knife from your KitchenAid® 11pc Professional Series Cutlery Set. Toss the hazelnuts with brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt in a medium bowl from your KitchenAid® Ceramic Mixing Bowl Set.
