Hasselback Potatoes

Thanks to pinterest I found this great this great blog post that I had fun trying out tonight. Pretty easy and tasty. I may try it again some time in the future with sweet potatoes.

Potatoes prepped for the oven

The finished product

Turned out great and a nice option to throw into the usual rotation of side dishes.

  • Medium sized potatoes - however many you wish to prepare for dinner
  • Garlic cloves thinly sliced, to taste
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Preheat the oven at 425 degrees.
  2. Start on one end of the potato, slicing nearly all the way through. Leave the bottom intact. Make each slice 2-4 mm thick.  
  3. Slice the garlic clove into thin slices and stuff between the wedges of the potato.  I used one clove for two potatoes and slipped in some garlic every 2-3 slices of potato. 
  4. Place potatoes on baking sheet. Drizzle with butter, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the insides are soft and the outside is crisp.
