Hasselback potatoes ingredients Hasselback potatoes is a Swedish dish, its name originates from Hasselbacken. A restaurant based in Stockholm where this dish was first served.

These baked and seasoned potatoes turn out crisp on the outside and deliciously tender on the inside.

Preparing the Hasselback potatoes -- 5 minutes

PRE-HEAT the oven to 220 degrees Celsius or 428 degrees Fahrenheit. MELT the butter slowly in the small saucepan. Using the chef's knife make lengthwise cuts in each potato, be sure not to slice all the way trough.

A handy trick to prevent from slicing all the way trough is to place the potato on a spoon and then cut them. COAT the potato with the melted butter using a silicone brush. Repeat for the other 3 potatoes.
