Hasselback Potatoes


Hasselback Potatoes recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Roasted, slightly crisp, fluffy and delicious, Hasselback Potatoes are a new favorite in our house as of tonight. It took me less than 3 minutes to prep these, thanks to an awesome tip that I stumbled onto while browsing Chris' mouthwatering blog, Nibble Me This. I recently saw another great cutting tip at Sweet Anna's as well.

In order to slice the potatoes easily, without cutting through the very bottom of the potato, I placed two chopsticks along the sides of the potatoes. Without worrying about how deeply I was cutting them, I was able to slice and prep four potatoes in just minutes.

These potatoes have infinite seasoning possibilities. This time, my goal was a very simple potato and this was one of the best roasted potatoes I have ever had.

Hasselback Potatoes
(printable recipe)

4 medium size potatoes, I have used Yukon potatoes, red potatoes and russets
olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and slice the potatoes, according to the above method. potatoes and then set on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, in between the slices and over the exterior of the potatoes. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt.

Roast for 40 minutes and then remove from oven. Let cool just slightly before eating. These potatoes also reheat very well. I actually made them in the morning (when I already had the oven hot with other baking) and then kept them in a covered container in the fridge until dinnertime. I popped them in the hot oven with the rest of our dinner for about 10 minutes right before serving. Enjoy!

I drizzled mine with homemade ranch dressing and it was delicious!

  5. I LOVE the chopsticks tip! We made these again last night (yep, 4 times in the last week!) and tried the chopsticks method... WAY better than spoon or not! Thanks for sharing that hon!

    Glad you liked the potatoes! :o) They are good aren't they??

    (Oh, and also... definitely gonna try your 'bake ahead and reheat' tip! Would have come in handy last night as we were all waiting impatiently for the potatoes to be done!!)

  14. We used to serve these at the hotel I worked at during college so your post brings back lots of memories. This was the potato the served for weddings and banquets and they were always a huge hit. I have never made them, though. I have russets and nothing planned for dinner 2nite so I might have to try these. I like the idea with the chopsticks.
