HOW TO MAKE THESE HASSELBACK POTATOES
They are easier to make than you think! The only challenge? Trying not to slice too far into the potato that you cut a full slice, while cutting it enough to create an accordion style look to fill with butter, herbs, and parmesan cheese.
There are a lot of methods out there for making slicing potatoes hasselback style easier. Some show using chopsticks on either side of the potatoes or thin wooden spoons, etc. These are wonderful methods to stop your knife as you are slicing, but as many times as I have made these Mini Garlic Butter Parmesan Hasselback Potatoes, I find it a hassle to keep the chopsticks from moving and against the potato. For me, I find it easier to have a firm grip on one chopstick and the potato as I slice. Do what works best for you. If you don’t have chopsticks, you could use skewers – wooden or metal.
Just slice slowly and gently so that you can control how far down the potato you slice.
Do you need to use mini baby yukon potatoes? Nope! You can make this recipe with larger potatoes, yukon or russet style. I find these two crisp the best.
Once you’ve sliced the potatoes hasselback style, simply coat them in olive oil and seasonings. Drizzle with butter and bake! Depending on the size of your potatoes, the baking process should only take about 40-60 minutes. Baby yukon potatoes (for me) take approximately 40-45 minutes.
They come out of the oven:
–> BUTTERY, GARLICKY
… simply delicious!
Look at that crispy perfection. Makes me wish I could reach through my screen and take a bite out of one! Wouldn’t you agree??
