Hasselback Potatoes

A special way to do up your spuds! This style of baking potatoes is named after the Swedish hotel where it was invented. When preparing these potatoes, make sure not to slice all the way through. Baking this way gives it a crunchy exterior and a tenderer inside. Combine that with a blend of cheese and seasonings – delicious! Traditionally it’s served with an excess of butter; I use smaller amounts of olive oil to reduce calories, fat and saturated fat.

1. Preheat oven to 450F.
2. Slice the potatoes into thin slices, not cutting all the way through the potato, leaving 1/4 inch at the bottom unsliced.
3. Brush potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with seasalt and Parmesean cheese. Bake for 1 hr. During bake time, every 15 minutes brush with more olive oil.
4. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on potatoes during last 5 minutes of baking.
5. Remove from oven and add garnish if using, and serve.
