Like french fries, the Rosemary Garlic Hasselback Potatoes edges are as crispy, but the cores are as fluffy as mashed potatoes.

Hasselback Potatoes are a form of a baked potato that was first developed in Hasselbacken, a pub in Sweden. They are a cherished component of Swedish food culture that has been recreated in many variations throughout the world, with countless toppings and seasonings.

Due to their visual attractiveness, Hasselback potatoes are very popular. Yet, in taste and texture, they also have a great deal to offer. While baking, the thin folds of skin around each slice turn super crunchy and crispy. The inner layers, however, become soft and delightful, seasoned with herbed butter, and spices between the potato folds.

If you aren’t a lover of garlic (chances are you are a vampire, lol!) or rosemary, don’t hesitate to roast your potatoes with just a splash of extra virgin olive oil. There are still more combinations you can try, though. You may use grated or slices of cheese to stuff them.

Feel free to substitute with thinly sliced green onions, such as chives, or scallions, for herbs and garlic. I really like to garnish with other seasonal herbs such as thyme, and parsley. Is there a better to supplement the humble potato’s taste than with some herbs? I doubt. I enjoy rosemary, which for roast potatoes is a classic spice. Chives, parsley, and green onion, however, are also outstanding options.
