BM #86 Week 1 Day 2 - 

I read on the internet that Hasselback gets its name from a Swedish restaurant where it was first served. These seasoned potatoes fan out with crispy edges and soft insides. 

My little one said that they were like potato chips plus mashed potato all in one :). My older one was impressed by the look and couldn't wait for it to get crispier. I would have left it in the oven for another 15 minutes but couldn't handle the restless kids.

There are numerous versions of Hasselback potatoes available online some with cheesy toppings as well. But I wanted to keep it simple and vegan.

Ingredients - 

Potatoes 4 (Any baking variety should be good)
Olive Oil 1-2 Tbsp (or as needed)
Salt and Pepper as needed

* I later seasoned with onion powder, garlic powder and paprika
* Choose the potatoes so that they are a little flatter on one side as they would be stable and won't roll off. You could also slice off the underside to make it flatter.

Method Of Preparation -

Preheat the oven to 425°

Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil, parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Place the potato with the flatter side down on a cutting board, place chop sticks or wooden spoons on either side of the potato. Make thin slices (thickness is as per preference), cutting down to the chop stick or wooden spoon. [Make sure the potato is not sliced through completely.

Arrange the sliced potatoes with the flatter side down on the lined baking tray.

Lightly brush with the olive oil over the slices and get in and around each slice as best you can. Season with salt and fresh cracked pepper.

Bake for 30 minutes, remove and baste with olive oil again and continue baking for another 30 minutes. 

Remove and baste with olive oil again and continue for another 25-30 minutes for a cripsier exterior. 

Potatoes will be crispy and golden brown. Top with fresh herbs or other seasonings and serve warm.


Preparation Time 1 1/2 hours
Serves 4
