I have a real weakness when it comes to potatoes. I love a potato that is crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside. Baked potatoes have all the textures I desire. Hasselback Potatoes takes the baked potato one step further. They remind me of a fat, slinky French Fry.
When you think Hasselback Potatoes, imagine Baked Potato meets French Fries, or Roasted Potato. It’s like having your cake and eating it too. Crisp on the outside like a French Fry, fluffy on the inside like a baked potato. Likewise, a Hasselback Potato can be topped with butter, sour cream and chives much the same way. You can even add some cheese and crumbled bacon if you like, or season them with a mixture of garlic and herbs much like you would for roasted potatoes.
