Tuesdays At The Table - Hasselback Potatoes

Happy Tuesday!  Did everyone have a good weekend?  Mine was rather quiet.  While my friends were off camping, me & my needles 'o fire got two scarves done.  :-) Mom is having knee surgery Tuesday morning.  If anyone has a few extra minutes to send some good thoughts - I'd appreciate it!

We've well documented that I like Pinterest, right?  Right.  I saw these great looking potatoes, and decided on Monday that I just had to try them.  They came out GREAT!!!!

Hasselback Potatoes

6 Medium Size Potatoes
2 - 3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Butter (a few pats)
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Put the potato on a chopping board, flat side down. Start from one end of the potato, cut almost all the way through, at about 3 to 4 mm intervals.

Arrange the potatoes in a baking tray and insert the garlic in between the slits. Scatter some butter on top of each potato. Then drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy and the flesh is soft.


Don't mind the tinfoil.  I didn't feel like scrubbing a baking pan.  :-)

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  12. My husband makes amazing hasselback potatoes. He puts chopsticks on each side of the potato so he can cut down without going all the way through. He also piles them up with butter so they taste AMAZING.

    I've linked up my go-to roast chicken recipe. It's so easy, and tastes great.

  14. Yummy! I made hasselback potatoes, and put butter and olive oil on top... and while they look pretty and the edges were crispy and starting to burn, the middle was undercooked and slightly crunchy, even after cooking it for a good hour, plus. Any idea why that might have happened?

    I shared my recipes for Polenta and for a delicious, flexible, and versatile gluten free flatbread that can be used for pizza, wraps, toast, sandwiches, etc, and isn't made with any exotic or expensive ingredients. Hope you like it!

  23. Love those potatoes, too (but we do all dairy free due to allergies). I like to put some thyme in ours with the garlic. Mmmm... Now I need to make some! Thanks for sharing and reminding me about them!

  24. These look so tasty! I think I'll make them tonight to go with the chicken I'm making!
