The Hasselback Potato
Have you made Hasselback potatoes? They’re a twist on baked potatoes created in Sweden–basically a fanned baked potato which increases the surface area available for seasoning. The insides are creamy while the exposed surfaces bake up to crispy deliciousness. But to make these for a crowd can be a bit daunting. I served this Hasselback Potato Casserole to my dinner club for brunch. They all wanted the recipe, especially once I explained how simple it was to make!
Delicious and Adaptable
I found the inspiration for this hasselback potatoes recipe on a fellow blogger’s site (see link below). Laura used a combination of Yukon golds and sweet potatoes. I skipped the orange spuds so as not to scare off the picky hubby. I dug out my mandoline and peeled and sliced the potatoes and onions, tossed them in olive oil and seasoned liberally with salt, pepper and fresh minced rosemary.
You can drizzle on some butter, use thyme instead of rosemary, or add back in the sweet potatoes for a colorful potato medley. This easy casserole can be made in any size you’d like, just poke your potatoes to make sure they’re tender before uncovering them for the browning stage. Hasselback potatoes are perfect for entertaining, serving for the holidays, or even weeknight dinners. My dinner club friends ALL wanted the recipe. A fine endorsement.Print

Season liberally as potatoes will be bland without salt.
