HASSELBACK POTATOES

we’re pretty potato obsessed over here at the DLF office (mashed potato waffles, rosemary potatoes, and scalloped potatos). i’ve been eyeing these ones for awhile and with Super Bowl sunday right around the corner now seemed like the perfect time to make them. they were a hit and definitely worth trying at home! – joanie

what you’ll need: 

• 6 ruset potatoes
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 garlic gloves
• fresh thyme and rosemary
• 2 tablespoons butter
• maldon salt

topping options: 

• sour cream
• bacon
• green onion
• shredded cheese

• pre-heat your oven to 450. wash and dry your potatoes and place on a cookie sheet. take a knife and make slices into the potatoes making sure not to cut all the way through. we tried to cut about 1/4 inch slices but you could make them thicker or thinner as desired.

• stuff the potatoes with fresh herbs and sliced garlic. drizzle with olive oil, rub the potatoes around in the oil until coated. sprinkle generously with salt (we like a lot of salt!) and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes.

• remove from the oven, pull out the herbs and throw them away. butter the top of the potatoes with a knife and place back in the oven to cook for 30 more minutes. we wanted the edges of the potatoes to be crispy like a chip so we kept them in there for 40 more minutes but if you like a softer potato 30 minutes should work.

• we recommend setting the toppings out in bowls and letting people assemble their own. you can almost eat these with your hands, pulling them apart and dipping them in sour cream (soooo good!)

    Ha! I didn’t know Hasselback potatoes was even a thing in the US! They’re the long term signature dish at restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, Sweden – that’s where they got their name.
