Garlic hasselback potatoes

Garlic Hasselback Potatoes are flavorful, easy-to-make baked potatoes. They are fanned out and filled with garlic and butter.

– Russet potatoes – Unsalted butter – Garlic – Salt & pepper – Fresh thyme

Hasselback potatoes are potatoes that have been sliced incrementally across without cutting all the way through. They're cooked and often stuffed with various ingredients.

They got this unusual name from a restaurant in Stockholm called Hasselbacken. They are the originators of the recipe.

Place your washed potato on top of two chopsticks or two equal-sized wooden spoons.

Slice ⅛ inch thick slices only going down to the chopsticks (or wooden spoon handles) without cutting through the bottom.

Spread melted butter over the tops of the potatoes and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.  Add the garlic to the leftover butter so you can add it after the potatoes are done.

When the potatoes are done baking, add the garlic butter to the tops generously. Return to the oven for about 10 minutes to crisp up with the additional garlic.
