Hasselback Potatoes

During my poor college years potatoes became my best friend. I learned how to cook them in every way possible! Potatoes were cheap and filling so it became a basic food group for me. Hashed, fried, baked, mashed, curried you name it I’ve cooked it. The only way I have never had a potato is Hasselback style. And now it’s my new favorite way to eat a potato! The skin is crispy and the potato is perfectly baked and seasoned with Old Bay Seasoning!

Serves: 1 person per potato                                    Cook time: 1 hours

Old Bay Seasoning

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

As many potatoes as you can eat!

1. Preheat oven to 425 F

2. Wash the potatoes really well! Nothing ruins a good potato as grit in your mouth! You can take the skin off but for me the skin is the best part.

3. Use a really sharp knife to slice the potatoes down width wise thinly. (3-4 mm)  Make sure not to go through all the way!

4. Put the sliced potatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with Old Bay Seasoning, salt and pepper

5. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.

It is the perfect side for a hearty meal and you can impress your guests with this beautiful dish!
