Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

Hasselback potatoes recipe

This post is more of an idea for making potatoes instead of a bona fide recipe. I have seen this idea for baking potatoes on several other recipes sites and thought I would give it a try.

This technique allows the potato to cook faster than a traditional baked potato, and it also allows you to infuse the potato with flavors from the inside out. It’s an alternative way to bake a potato.

I put a few garlic slices and olive oil in between the layers of the potato in the photo above, but you can experiment with other spices, fresh herbs, cheese, or even flavored butter.

Potatoes are the ultimate cheap food. They are versatile, nourishing, and filling. The next time you’re making baked potatoes to accompany a main course, give these a try!

Cook Time: 40 min

Total Time: 50 min

Take your time - be careful not to cut entirely through the potato!

Ingredients:

  • Potatoes (any variety)
  • Olive oil or butter
  • Sliced garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chopped green onion

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Wash potatoes and leave skin on. Carefully cut each potato, lengthwise, every 1/4th inch or so. Do not cut entirely through the potato.
  2. Once all of the potatoes are sliced, drizzle with olive oil or butter and place garlic slices (or any other desired topping) in between the slits. Top with salt, pepper, or other desired spices. Place potatoes into a baking pan. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove foil and bake for additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Top with chopped green onions, sour cream, bacon bits, or any other favorite baked potato topping.
