Do you find that you’re always making potatoes the same way, dinner after dinner?  They’re either mashed or boiled or roasted.  But there are many other delicious ways to enjoy them, like Hasselback Potatoes.  These potatoes are crunchy, salty and delicious, almost like chips!  And they’re a nice change from the regular potato routine.

Hasselback Potatoes

So let’s talk about Hasselback Potatoes…what are they exactly? Well simply put they are a baked potato, except you cut thin slices into the potato, then you fill the spaces between these slices with butter or olive oil, salt & pepper and even herbs if you like.  Then you bake them until they are wonderfully crispy!  So good.  They’re delicious served alongside roasted chicken, BBQ meats and even chili!

Hasselback Potatoes Recipe Tips:

  • You can use any potatoes:  Russet, Yukon Gold, and red potatoes all are great options!
  • Cutting the Potatoes:  Make sure you don’t slice through the bottom of the potato, because you want the bottom of the potato to remain intact.
  • The thinner the slices, the more crunchy the potatoes are.
  • For extra flavour, sprinkle on some fresh or dried herbs at the same time you season with salt and pepper.  Rosemary and thyme are especially delicious.
  • These potatoes can bake for 60 minutes or longer, depending on how big they are.  Sometimes I will let mine bake for almost 1 1/2 hours, which makes them nice and crunchy.

Description

These Hasselback Potatoes are buttery, crispy and SO delicious!  This potato side dish is a tasty addition to your dinner table, and a great way to enjoy potatoes in a different way.


Ingredients

  • baking potatoes (leave the skin on)
  • melted butter or oil for drizzling (vegetable or olive oil)
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • fresh or dried herbs, like rosemary or thyme

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash and scrub your potatoes, and leave the skin on.
  3. Cut each potato into thin slices about 1/4 inch apart, and 3/4 of the way through to the bottom of the potato, making sure you don’t cut through the bottom of the potato. (You want the bottom of the potato to remain intact.) Also, if you want to cut the slices even thinner, feel free to do so – I like them this way because the slices get more crunchy the thinner they are.
  4. Place the potatoes in a baking dish, or on a baking sheet.
  5. Gently spread open the slices so you can drizzle on the butter or oil.
  6. Drizzle the potatoes with the butter or oil, making sure that some of the butter/oil gets down into the slices.
  7. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, and herbs if you are using them.
  8. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes. They can be baked for longer if you would like them crunchy…sometimes I will let mine bake for almost 1 1/2 hours.
