I’ve been seeing pictures of Hasselback potatoes everywhere for a few months…this is my first attempt to make them. I didn’t realize they are the new “thing”.
I used two red potatoes and cut them on a wooden spoon as the recipe suggests…pretty clever. I sliced garlic and placed it between the slices of potatoes and misto-ed them with olive oil. A little salt and pepper and pop them in the oven. I didn’t use butter at all – I didn’t miss it either.
This is a great way to serve potatoes! Not only do they look amazing but they taste amazing. I prefer this to the standard baked potato any day! Roasting brings out the flavor and then there’s the garlic between the cuts…delicious.
