default How to Hasselback Your Potatoes

Post by Adrian on 11th December 2010, 9:03 pm

You might have all the fixin’s for a fine holiday meal, but maybe you’re looking for that one last little side dish that will lend some sparkle to the dinner table. These Hasselback potatoes, the Swedish version of baked potatoes, are a dream. They are so simple to make (just three steps! That’s it!), look absolutely gorgeous when served with a meal, and taste splendid. Slicing the potatoes and coating them with a bit of oil or butter allows them to bake up with a light, crunchy shell. “They taste like french fries,” said my 7-year old, as she pulled each layer apart over dinner, “they’re yummy!” And, really, they are so good. Perfect for a weeknight meal, fancy enough for a dinner party. If you haven’t got Hasselback potatoes on the menu this month, it’s time to add them to your list. . Totally amazing!Hasselback Potatoes

  • 6-8 medium Idaho potatoes
  • 6-8 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
STEP 1. Scrub potatoes very well, ensuring the exterior skin is clean and free of any debris. With a sharp knife, cut small, thin slices from the top of the potato until just below the middle of the potato. STEP 2. Carefully press each potato open slightly, then drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil inside the potato. Massage the olive oil into the skin of the potato. Trasnfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper. STEP 3. Bake potatoes in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 60-70 minutes, or until the exterior of the potato is crispy, and the interior is soft and tender.

Ah. I( thought you just had to drink your own bodyweight in alcohol before making the potatoes into french fries. But then I realised that was Hasselhofing potatoes rather than hasselbacking.

Nope, I just forgot to put the link to the originating blog post. We were on our way out for a meal with friends and I was in a rush to get the post up before I shut down the laptop.

Just had some for dinner, and they were really nice! Dad's not home yet, so he's got it to look forward to.
