Hasselback Potatoes

1 Review

I saw this recipe for hasselback potatoes over at Sea Salt With Food and I was instantly intrigued. When we were younger, my older sister and I used to slice potatoes really thin and bake them and eat them with homemade honey mustard. I was curious to see if this would be a good way to get the outside all crispy, but keep the inside tender. Sure enough! The ridges and bottom get so crispy and delicious while the meat of the potato was so light and tender. What a perfect combination! I LOVED how garlicky it was and that sea salt… MMMMMMMMMMM. I think this will be a good experimenting potato. Maybe some paprika etc next time. It will be like the Chec potatoes grandma makes.

  • Start from one end of the potato, cut almost all the way through, making thin slices.
  • Arrange the potatoes in a baking tray and insert the garlic in between the slits.
  • Scatter some butter on top of each potato.
  • Then drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy and the flesh is soft.

  • Put the potato on a large wooden spoon then cut. You won’t have to worry about skiing all the way through. I stab the potato with a dinner girl to use as a guide.

  • That sounds delicious & much easier than trying to get a lot of sliced potatoes individually baked. I'll have to try it.
