Hasselback Potatoes

Something wonderful about a garlicy, crispy baked potato fresh from the oven !   Hasselback Potatoes are just perfect and so very easy to make.


Baking Potatoes – Garlic cloves (1 per potato) – Butter – Sea Salt – Olive Oil – Parmesan Cheese ( Optional )


Clean the potatoes and slice a slither off the bottom so they sit flat onto the baking tray. Cut into the potato every 3 mm being careful not to cut all the way through the potato. Thinly slice the garlic cloves and add slices of garlic into each of the cuts. Spread a little butter over the top of the potato ensuring that some of the butter goes into the cuts with the garlic. Sprinkle with a generous amount of sea salt before drizzling a small amount of olive oil over the top of the potatoes. If you want a cheesy potato now is the time to sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Bake the potatoes in an oven for around 45 minutes – 1 hour depending on how crispy you like your potatoes. ( Oven temp 200 c / Gas 6 / 400 f )

Wow, Our Kitchen smells amazing right now, roast lamb and garlic Hasselbacks. Time to pour a large glass of red wine and enjoy. . .

    First of all, Hasselbackspotatis is one of my favorite dishes ever, and yours looks utterly amazing! It’d make any Swedish chef (bork bork bork!) proud! And it’s great for this time of year, too!

    Second, thanks for stopping by my blog, since now I know yours is here!

    All the best,

    • Hi Veronika

      Thank you very much for such kind comments. Trust me these Hasselback potatoes tasted everybit as good as they looked. So much more exciting to look at than a plain baked potato too. . .

    • Hi there Rhoda, these Hasselbacks were large potatoes in place of the traditional baked potato however the principle works really well with a tray full of smaller potatoes just remember to reduce the cooking time accordingly.
