Just what is a Hassleback Potato, you ask?  Fanned out like an accordion, these spuds were named after the Restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, Sweden.  It was here that these delicious cheesy potatoes were created.

While these little gems may look intricate and difficult to make, they aren’t. They are just a few simple steps away from traditional, every day, run-of-the-mill baked potatoes.   All it takes is a few swipes of your knife (be sure to take note of the wooden spoon trick below) and some scrumptious toppings.  And viola!  Hassleback Cheesy Potatoes!

These lovelies come out of the oven with crisped edges, a tender interior and toppings with every bite.  Pure potato perfection.  (Excuse the alliteration.) One of the best things about these potatoes is that they are extremely versatile.  You can add any ingredient you’d like to make them over-the-top delicious.  I used parmesan, garlic and a little cheddar.  But you can use bacon, chives, rosemary, or any other topping that floats your boat.

These cheesy potatoes are easy enough for a family dinner but fancy-schmancy enough for company.  Print it, book mark it, pin it, save it, forward it.  Do what ever you need to do to make sure you have this recipe saved!  It’s a keeper!
