Hasselback Potatoes

I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about my love of potatoes. Haven’t I??? Just in case, I’ll say it again. Potatoes are delicious. I could eat them every day. Seriously, I could.

That’s why it’s important for me to try different recipes, to find new ways to cook them.

I came across this recipe from Nigella. I was intrigued. I had to try it.

These were actually super easy and super delicious. I’m definitely going to be making them again (and again).


Hasselback Potatoes

4 Russet Potatoes
2 tsp Olive Oil
4 tsp Butter
4 Cloves Garlic
Salt and Pepper, To Taste

Preheat oven to 425F.

Peel and slice the garlic. I have this awesome garlic slicer from Pampered Chef, but a knife will work!


Wash potatoes and cut them almost all the way through every ¼ inch.


Put the garlic between each slice.

Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil, ½ tsp each, and top with butter, 1 tsp each potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Bake for about 40 minutes, or until they are crispy outside and the flesh is soft.
