One of the recipes I’ve seen around and have been wanting to make lately is Hasselback Potatoes. They’re so dainty and elegant! Not to mention some of my favorite ingredients combined into one recipe: potatoes, cheese, butter and sour cream.
It’s no secret I love cheesy starches… so I jumped at trying to make these potatoes. The only problem was that on my first attempt… I sliced right through the potatoes. Then I read on She Makes and Bakes this awesome little tip:
Put the handle of a wooden spoon in front of your potato before you slice it. What a great idea! I was able to thinly slice the potato without having to worry about slicing all the way through it.
Using the handle of the wooden spoon, I was able make those thin little slices (almost) perfectly with minimal effort.
They bake up with a slight crispiness on the outside and are tender and flavorful on the inside. Especially when you add butter, garlic, cheese and sour cream! Feel free to add YOUR favorite baked potato toppings… you can’t go wrong. If you’re looking for a new way to bake beautiful, cheesy potatoes, you’ve gotta give these a try.
