Hasselback Potatoes

I’ve been looking at this recipe on Pinterest for a while, so I figured I would give it a shot. Totally worth it. I added crumbled bacon and shredded cheese.

Here’s the recipe:

This recipe, adapted from one served at Stockholm’s popular old Restaurant Hasselbacken, proves just how easy and delicious potatoes can be.

For best results, choose oblong potatoes of uniform size and trim if needed so they’ll lie flat without wobbling as you cut into them.

Prep: 15 minutes, Bake: 55 minutes.


■4 medium all-purpose potatoes
■1 Stick of butter
■1/2 teaspoon salt
■cooked, crumbled bacon
■Grated cheese (whatever kind tickles your fancy)

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Slice each potato at 1/8-inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom.
2. Arrange potatoes spoke-fashion in a greased (I used Pam) 13×9 baking dish. I prefer glass but I’m sure any will be fine.
3.Tuck a half of a slice of butter between each section.
4.Sprinkle with salt and pepper
5.Bake potatoes at 425° on middle oven rack for 30 minutes. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over potatoes, drizzle with remaining melted butter, and bake 20 more minutes.
6.Sprinkle cheese and bacon over potatoes, baste with butter in pan, and bake 5 more minutes or until potatoes are golden.

The result? These are awesome. Definitely making them again!
