Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes

Ready in 45 minutes

Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

"A different take on the traditional baked potatoe. I only made two potatoes so I used 2 tbsp of butter instead of what was called for. They seemed a little dry about half way through, so i drizzled 1tbsp extra butter at that time. Worked like a charm!"

Great recipe. Potatos are crisp on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. Full of flavour too

I would add some herbs and a bit of spice to it the next time I make this. It was nice though.

I haven't tried yet. Question, do you use baking potatoes?

It was a good recipe but after reading the review I decided to alternate garlic and onion slices between the layers. The onion gave it a good flavor and kept a little more moisture in the potato. Topped with a little sour cream it was a hit.

I have made these a bunch of times and they always turn out great. We do like them with more seasoning though. I melt together butter, olive oil, minced garlic, fresh thyme, chives, salt & pepper then brush over the potatoes before baking...so good. I never have a problem with the time or temp, 40 mins at 425 seems to be right on, crispy edges & fluffy insides. I wonder if maybe some are using potatoes too big, slicing too shallow or slicing too wide? Could it be that some are baking at 220F not realizing the recipe says 220C (425F)?
