Yummy! Hasselback Potatos

Another delicious Pinterest find, Hasselback potatoes are the Swedish version of baked potatoes.  Just a few extra steps to the typical baked potato, but it adds so much flavor!

I altered the recipe a little bit from what Seasaltwithfood originally did, so here it goes:

Medium size potatoes (I used Russet)
2 cloves of garlic, minced (I used my wonderful Pampered Chef Garlic Press)
2 tbsp butter, melted
Sea salt

Preheat oven 425. Wash and dry potatoes.  Slice each potato thinly about 3/4 of the way through.  Place minced garlic on top and let some fall down in cracks.  Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt.  Bake for 45 - 50 minutes, until top is crispy and potato is cooked through.

These were so delicious I actually brought a leftover one for lunch today, and I am so not a leftover person!

On another note, if you don't have a Pampered Chef garlic press, I strongly suggest, nothing is better than fresh garlic.  The best part of this press, is you never have to touch the minced garlic or peel, I just scrape it off with a knife and use the same knife to pop out whats left of the peel after pressing.  So no worries about how you are going to get the smell off your hands (baking soda works great!)


  1. I just made your wing dip this weekend! This looks yummy too!

  2. The best part about the potatoes is they are even delicious reheated. I had a leftover one for lunch yesterday and it was just as good!
