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!
