Hasselback Red Potatoes

How to make hasselback potatoes

Hasselback potatoes are amazingly delicious! Even better, they are lower in fat than baked potatoes or Twice Baked Potatoes. And they are so easy to make! This week when I made hasselback potatoes, I decided to use smaller red potatoes instead of russet potatoes. It was a little harder to get the spices between the potato slices, but the crunchy herbs on top of the potatoes made a delicious variation.

  5. Laura H-S says:

    Slicing the potatoes part way through is easier if you put a wooden chopstick on each side of the potato before slicing. They stop the knife at a consistent level for nice, even slices.
