Do you know what a “Hasselback Potato is”? I didn’t until I spoke to my sister for inspiration on a new recipe, she recommended me looking it up, when I did, it didn’t take much for me to convince myself to try it out!
Hasselback potatoes originate in Sweden from the Hasselbacken Hotel Restaurant, this was their version of a baked potato. The concept is great, slice the potato, stuff it with what you like and bake it. For me, I did 2 versions, one with butter, bacon/cheese and the other with salt/pepper and pepperjack cheese.
A few things about this recipe or potatoes in general:
- Scrub the outside of the potato to remove all dirt
- Slicing the potato can be challenging, use a sharp knife
- I bought real bacon and cheddar cheese from the grocery store salad bar
- Roll the potato in a little olive oil, salt and rosemary for added flavor
To prepare the hasselback potato, scrub the outside of potato
slice thin slices into the potato, this is what makes it a hasselback potato
season potato, place butter in between the slices or on top (follow my directions on this as I would put the butter in between the slits next time.
bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour remove add your cheese or extra toppings (bacon/cheese)
bake an additional 10 minutes (pepperjack potato)

Thank you again Adriana for the inspiration in making the hasselback potato! The best part about this recipe is that you can modify each potato for each guest…not only that but leftovers are great the next day when you serve them with eggs.
