Hasselback Potatoes


These Hasselback potatoes looks beautiful, don't' they? Here, I also added several cloves of garlic to these Swedish version of baked potatoes to enhance the flavor. It turned out great, they were very delicious, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside..

This is an updated post with a new video guide on How To Slice Hasselback Potatoes


Hasselback Potatoes
(Printable Recipe)

Ingredients

6 Medium Size Potatoes
2 - 3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
30 g Butter
Maldon Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 220˚C (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.

  4. I've never seen anything like this- they look fantasic! and super fun.

  5. Great to see someone blogging this recipe! One extra tip, cut a thin slice lengthwise off the bottom before you begin cutting it on top. This keeps it from rolling around when cutting.

  6. Those look fabulous...I'm so doing this for potatoes next time

  7. Being a Swede I've enjoyed Hasselback potatoes most part of my life. Story goes that this was a specialty item at a restaurant situated in what is called "Hasselbacken" (Hazel hill).

    To facilitate cutting the potatoes to an even depth you can put them in a wooden spoon, it really makes it easier.

    The traditional recipe is salt, butter and a sprinkle of breadcrumbs. This is how I've always made them but this is an interesting twist that I'll definitely try, looks very tasty.

  8. I'm going to make these tonight, they look fabulously tasty.

  10. In Denmark, where I grew up with these type of potatoes we just sprinkle them with paprika. Didn't even consider them not known outside of DK (and Sweden apparently). A tex-mex chilli powder tastes great on them as well.

  11. Superb potatoes, I'm actually having a bit of a potato frenzy at the moment and stumbled your blog just at the right time. Great blog btw, I just started following you.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love making these potatoes, although I only use olive oil, sea salt, ground pepper, and Italian seasoning. I'm DEFINITELY going to have to try this version, as well, it sounds delicious!!

    ReplyDelete

  30. Is it better to use waxy or floury potatoes for this?

    ReplyDelete
  31. @S - voodoobass: Waxy potatoes works better because they are good at staying firm and keeping their shape. Thanks for the comment:)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fantastic recipe! I will be doing this one very soon. Thank you for the idea. I gave it a thumbs-up on Stumbleupon:)

    ReplyDelete
  33. These sound fantastic! Thumbs up on Stumble!

    ReplyDelete
  34. So, how cool, and how easy is that? A hit in my house for sure!! and it's hot where we live. I will have to see how well it travels, but for now, an excellent home dish which the whole family loves.

    ReplyDelete
  35. looks good but don't heat olive oil above 350 degrees F. It turns to trans-fat when heated up to about 370 or so. Butter is good at 400 degrees though.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the gorgeous look of those potatoes, absolutely yummy. Will definitely try those. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi! I made these last night and they were wonderful and so easy! Will go on the rotation for sure. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. OMG! Those look sooooo good!
    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    ReplyDelete
  39. i just tried this recipe, it is so super easy and incredibly delicious! thanks for the tip!

    ReplyDelete
  40. So beautiful! I love how you added garlic. I've never made these b/c they seemed to plain. And I can't believe you used just 2 tbs. of olive oil. I'll have to give them a go.

    ReplyDelete
  41. These potatoes look wonderful...
    merci for the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  42. WOW this is one I'll have to try. When you bake them, do the slices separate on their own?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Can't believe I have never seen these before... tried the recipe out this weekend and they taste as good as they look! I'll be doing that one again.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nice idea. I also like the look of your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  45. What I'd REALLY like to see is HasselHOFF potatoes!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Another easy way to cut the potatoes without cutting the whole way through is to place a wooden chopstick on either side of the potato so you simply slice down until your knife is resting on the chopsticks.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @tahtimbo: Thanks for the "thumbs-up"!

    @Mallory: Thanks for the "thumbs-up" too!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Those are served on a stick down here at Fairs. :-0
    Your pics are gorgeous, I might have to try making those at home ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. These look so delicious and crispy

    ReplyDelete
  55. I had these just 2 days ago and am thinking of having them again this evening! Have you heard of heaven? Well I just recently went there with these potatoes. Mmm Mmm. Yay and Hooray all at once!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I've made these before and they were mad! Sprinkle some paprika over the top for some extra bite.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I failed at making these, sadly... I should have read the comments before trying to cut the potatoes.. Also wondering if I need a different kind of potato, my potato's still got the rough brown looking skin.
    It wasn't a total waste though, despite their look they are still pretty delicious with sour cream.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Simple and impressive! This is definitely my next potato preparation.

    A note in reply to the anonymous comment on the 18th, about heating olive oil - that's a myth.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I really have to try these. I didn't imagine you could get potatoes looking all crispy without dousing them in grease, LOL! I think I'll try them with some paprika, red and cayenne pepper. Thanks A!

    ReplyDelete
  60. @Walter: Happy cooking!

    @sandwicharchitecture : Do try making them:)

    @Rachel : Potato on a stick? Good idea! Thanks.

    @Wendylee: Thanks. Do try the recipe.

    @Anonymous: Your comment, really made my day! Thanks :D

    ReplyDelete
  61. @Kham Tran: Thanks for the tips!

    @Just Reen: Waxy potatoes are best for this recipe. Hope you will try making them again.

    @parsnips aplenty: Thanks and noted about the olive oil :)

    @Laryea: Ya, those chili peppers sound good to me too!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love these and have made them many times - the only thing I add is cheese on top!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Phenomenal! My kids will go crazy for these, especially with a little parmesan added on top!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hasselback potatos, More like Seneca Wallace potatos. To anyone who got that joke, thanks for watching the NFL!

  67. I haven't made these for YEARS!!!

    Guess what I'll be wowing my boys with tonight???

    (Erm... the answer is your pototoes. I just realised that the above sentence looked a little suggestive...)

    ReplyDelete
  68. great receipe! I will definately use this for dinner one night!

    Bonnie

    ReplyDelete
  69. Put the wooden spoon handle beside the potato to use it as a stop, so you don't cut all the through. Try them on the grill, cook them in foil, but use a garlic vinegrette dressing! Damn fine, and way easy.

    ReplyDelete
  70. It's always the simple things in life that are unexpectedly the BEST.
    Can't wait to try these.
    Thank you for the idea!

    ReplyDelete
  71. WOW! I loved this recipe! I've cooked it twice already and the great thing about it is that you can even add extra stuff and actually be creative. I'm letting all my friends know about it. Thank you soooo much!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Absolutely loved these potatoes, just the right blend of garlic and pepper and salt. Fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I've made these twice so far and used russet potatoes since that is what I have. they take longer to cook, and if you brush the tops with a little melted butter about 20 min before they're done, this helps to crisp the top. I like the italian seasoning idea - didn't think of that. Next time though, I'll be using Yukon Gold potatoes. The ARE wonderfully delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I love Hasselback potatoes, but it has been a while since I made them. This post remind me to to it again.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Do you use a special tool to do the cuts or just a very sharp knife (and maybe rest the potato in a wooden spoon like suggested at the top). Would love to give these a try. My email: amy[at]streaminggourmet.com

    ReplyDelete
  76. Wow, that looks absolutely delicious! Great post, you did such a nice job presenting the pictures too...I am definitely going to have to try that recipe this weekend! Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. First time to your blog....what a wonderful & easy recipe....

    ReplyDelete
  78. they look fantastic and I bet they taste great. I'm thinking adding some rosemary and serving with some spring lamb...

    ReplyDelete
  79. Cooked these twice since I read this post. Turned out beautifully both times with minimum of effort on my part.
    Found that rubbing with garlic was sufficient flavour for my lot!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Tried thesse potatoes and it it was a lovely twist on a simple snack, i can not wait to show them off to friends and work colleagues.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What a great idea how to cook just an "ordinary" potato. You are a genius, will try tomorrow for dinner. I bet it would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I have been making these for years. I'm getting ready to post my version on my blog. I'm calling it 1 potato, 2 potato, 3 p...more. I use to make these for my kids.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  84. A work of art! A simple, beautiful and satisfying dish!

    ReplyDelete
  85. A simple but impressive way to make potatoes- I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Very nice and easy potato recipe. The photography really adds flavor .

    ReplyDelete
  87. Stumbled upon this page and loving it. As a Swede I enjoy seeing this recipe for Hasselback Potatoes, with a garlic twist, and I will try it asap as the photo alone brings back memories and makes me salivate like one of Pavlovs dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Great recipe, never tried them with the garlic slivers before, delicious.

    I hadn't made them for years, but stumbled upon your pages whilst looking for inspiration (for a departure from boiled spuds)for a dinner guest.

    I also sometimes slip a bay leaf into one of the slits in the potato. Good flavour (especially if serving with something meaty) & adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the aesthetics!

    ReplyDelete
  89. OMG, I'll try them for sure, Love the way they look!!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. These tasted and looked great, thanks for the recipe!

    (Impressive results for not much effort, although mine took close to an hour to cook, not 40 minutes)

    ReplyDelete
  91. I tried these tonight and they were a sure winner in our book! I love how the garlic infuses the potato with great flavor.

    And my daughter, who doesn't tend to like garlic, loved spreading the roasted clove on the potato. It reminded her of my breakfast potatoes

    ReplyDelete
  92. Just cooked these and they went down a treat! Everyone loved them. Although the garlic can be a little time consuming to put between the slices, I think I will use garlic infused oil or something similar next time.

    Also, 40 minutes isn't long enough either, definitely more like an hour.

    All in all, a fantastic recipe that anyone can make.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Definitely worth the extra effort to give each slice a touch of garlic. Makes a great plate presentation!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Quick tip on cutting them even..put potato between two wooden spoon handles and it will stop you from cutting to deep.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Wow, gorgeous blog. Absolutely lovely potatoes!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Gorgeous and looks simply delicious! I am going to try these. I've been looking around for Swedish recipes... I am part swedish and want to explore that side of food :o) Do you have a traditional swedish cookbook you can recommend??? Stop by my blog and let me know! Thanks so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I tried to make them but after 40 minutes in the oven, the outsides looked beautiful and crispy but the middles were hard. Even after 15 extra minutes the middles were disappointingly crunchy, not at all tender. Any idea what went wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  98. @Alexa: I'm not sure what went wrong. Did you slice the potato thinly and almost all the way through? I make them many times and always turn out perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  99. these look really good.. what a clever idea

    ReplyDelete
  100. Hi, I've followed the recipe for the hasselback potatoes several times, and after baking them for over two hours I end up with potatoes with crispy tops and uncooked bases, do you have any advice? I think since I was using rather old potatoes, that could have had something to do with it, just the regular Idahos.

    ReplyDelete
  101. @EC: Use Yellow Wax or Yukon Gold potato instead. And slice the potato thinly. Hope you will try making them again.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I tried these and the concept is great, nice and easy, and the flavor is good, but at least with my oven, 40 minutes wasn't nearly enough time. I'd suggest an hour.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Though I have a sneaking suspicion that my oven is not as hot as it claims, it took well over 40 minutes to bake them... BUT it is soooo worth it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. I saw the picture and the recipe of the hasselback potatoes two hours ago and I immediately went to the kitchen and cooked them. They turned out delicious and very beautiful!

    Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. SO good. More than 40 minutes for me too, actually 1.5 hours, same amount of time it took to roast the chicken. These are so pretty and fun for the kids to eat. Your photographs of them do them justice!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. This is what I will be having tonight. It looks awesome and I bet it will taste like that!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Could not really be easier. I will be trying this out tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  108. They are so similar to the potatoes at the Richmond Night Market. I was really impressed by them when I saw them first, but they were deep fried, I think. Yours seem much healthier and equally pretty! I will certainly try them. Glad I found your recipe and thanks for sharing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  109. just tried these tonight...delish, but perhaps it was the size of the potatoes i used, i had to cook well over an hour or so to get them fully done. i finished with a sprinkle of parmesean cheese! yum.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Well, my (swedish) mother taught me to make them by mixing grated cheese, butter and bread crumbs. some salt and pepper too of course. then you try to get the mix to stick to the potatoes instead of ending up between them... cooking them does take a while, but just make sure the oven's not too hot and that you start making them early.

    ReplyDelete
  111. My compliment for your blog and pictures included,I encourage you to photoblog

  112. I make a version of this using curry powder in melted butter and use a pastry brush to apply. Can use oven or microwave. Very tasty.

    ReplyDelete
  113. In the oven as I type. Only made two, and altered the recipe by using garlic powder and regular salt/pepper. I am a POOR college student, so it'll have to do. Im growing fond of not measuring things either, so i just poured some melted butter on them and probably a bit too much olive oil and called it a day. Hope they tatse just as good as they look!

    ReplyDelete
  114. These are a sure fire hit, The easy way to cut them is to pass a thin skewer or knitting needle throuth the potato about a third of the way up and slice down on to the skewer, even cuts every time, just mind your hands on the skewer.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Absolutely stunning pictures. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  116. seems yummy! thanks for the recipe

    ReplyDelete
  117. yummmmm!!! kool ... thanks for useful post (recipe).

  118. Those look delicious and easy to make!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love when I find a recipe for something that I already have at home...these are a win can't wait to try!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I think I'll be making these tonight! They look delicious, I think I might add a little Thyme in with the garlic.

    Also just a thank you to the person who linked the information on cooking with olice oil, that was incredibly useful!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I "stumbled" on your website...and it looked so beautiful that I had to try right away..

    they are in the oven right now..can't wait! :-)

    Thanks for posting this..

    ReplyDelete
  122. This looks absolutely scrumptious! The dressing sounds superb with the garlic and olive oil... mm!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I have these in my countertop oven now. Am using sweet potatoes because I had just bought some and they are so good for you. Expecting great things.

    ReplyDelete
  124. looks delicious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Like Emeril would say "kick it up a notch" by putting a slice of bacon in between all those cuts or slices of anything else that might cross your mind: eggplant, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.

    Also, an excellent tip I got from a friend: put 2 wooden chopsticks on both sides of the potatoes when cutting - it'll prevent cutting all the way down.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Interesting and versatile idea! Thanks for sharing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  127. Looks delicious. ^^ I'm gonna try these tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I tried them tonight, using red potatoes and what people call "butter potatoes" (a yellowish tint to the skin and flesh). The butter potatoes were MUCH better. Overall, though, both were phenomenal! I thought there would be too much garlic. Wasn't even close! They were perfect! Thanks for the suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  129. a Flickr contact just told me about http://www.airportdining.net/ airport restaurant reviews. Looks like it could be useful.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Just made it, best potatoes I've ever made!

  133. They look fantastic, great photos.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Hmm, I tried them tonight and they didn't come out quite as awesomely as in the picture... Maybe next time I'll try more butter and oil.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I found this on stumbleupon and its awesome!! I'm about to go make these for an apology lunch haha :p

    ReplyDelete
  136. got mine in the oven cooking right now :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. I just made these last night and they were amazing! The garlic permeates the potatoes very nicely and the flavor is awesome. I will be definitely making them again.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Try this, After baking, sprinkle with shredded Cheddar and pop back into oven until cheese melts.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I added the cheddar and it was fantastic!

  140. i want to make these right now, but on the grill.... any thoughts????

    ReplyDelete
  141. @Anonymous: Grill the potatoes on medium "indirect" heat.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I made this for brunch last week and one of my guests yelped, "Potato chips!" before munching it down. LOL. Great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  143. wow, how cool! never seen this before. Another one for my to-do list.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Wow this hasselback potatoes looks delicious, just by looking at the image it makes my mouth water. It looks like a croissant but really its potatoes. That is incredible, I would like to try this out now. Thanks for posting ingredients.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Put youre potato in a spoon for slicing ;0)

    ReplyDelete
  146. I have never seen these before, but they looked so good, I just put a batch in the oven!

    ReplyDelete
  147. I just made these potatoes! I lived in Denmark for a year and I have family that would make them periodically. I was excited when i found the recipe! For an extra twist I added about 1/8t thyme on each potato, which turned out great.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Looks delicious - I'm definitely going to try this!

    ReplyDelete
  149. These are absolutely gorgeous, I must try making some right now. What a way to amp up the normal baked potato!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Made these twice now and they were delicious both times. Thanks for the great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Just got done eating these heavenly potatoes! YUM! I infused the garlic into the oil and used 2 plastic pens on the base while cutting to ensure uniformity and to prevent cutting all the way through.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I used to make these years ago but I never knew what they were actually called until now! I sprinkled bits of rosemary for additional flavour.

    ReplyDelete
  153. is the butter supposed to be melted or just in chunks?

    ReplyDelete
  154. These are the best! I'm from Sweden and I grew up with these :) The wooden spoon is a must have when cutting thin slices. We always add plenty of cream on top of the potatoes (and in the form) when they have about 10 minutes left in the oven. Makes it ten times better!!! Make sure it's real cream (~40%).

    Love your site! Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  155. These look sooo good and yummy! Will give it a shot soon! Thanks for posting!

  156. Made these the other night and they were wonderful, crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. I used russets and they didn't even have that mealy grain that they normally have when just baked.

    TIP 1: Cut a thin slice off the bottom so the potato doesn't roll around when cutting the slices.

    TIP 2: Lay chopsticks on either side of the potato to obtain consistent vertical slices.

  160. My mom used to make these all the time when I was a kid, and I never knew what they were called...we called them pill bugs, because they looked like those garden bugs lmao

  161. These are in the oven as I write --my first time trying them. Reading the comments I see you can add many variations with different seasonings. I'm trying this original recipe first but would like to try an Italian and Tex Mex variation later however tonight I will sprinkle mine with paprika and parsley for color and serve with a side of sour cream, banking off the baked potato. Great post, glad I found it, thank you!

  164. Do you have to take the skin off the potato first?

  165. @lilly: It's not necessary to peel the potato skin.

  166. Made these tonight using medium sized Idaho baking potatoes. Turned out delicious except they didn't have the golden appearance as pictured. Will try the Yukon Gold potato next time.

  168. Just a quick tip; if you push a skewer through the potatoes length ways, it stops you cutting the slices too deep.

  170. The story my Chef told me about these in cooking school was that they are originally a German creation and they are named after the German word for when the hair on the back of a dog or cat sticks up when they are frightened or mad.
