Have you heard of these “Hassleback Potatoes”? I’ve been seeing them occasionally on Pinterest for a while now but, to be honest, they looked kind of intimidating! So pretty, delectable even- but I wasn’t sure I wanted to take them on. I am really into easy, simple and QUICK recipes so the fact that these would take an entire hour to cook turned me off for a while.

This week when I saw some as I was flipping through a magazine I took it as a sign that it was time! I decided on my own specially herbed recipe and got cooking. Welllll…. Oh Emmmm Geeee! I can not actually believe it took so long to get these Parmesan Hassleback Potatoes on my plate- where they did not last for long by the way because they were absolutely delicious!!!

Let’s talk potatoes-

The slicing requires a bit of finesse but after a few mishaps I got the hang of it and was well on my way. The biggest thing to remember is not to slice all the way through the potato. In hindsight- you could put the potato between 2 objects (like plates or other utensils perhaps) that would keep the knife from cutting clear through.

  9. Spoon your parm mixture over the potatoes getting it into the crevices as much as possible.
  10. Bake uncovered 15 more minutes,
  11. Plate and serve, enjoy!

They turned out so tasty! I did actually turn my broiler on for the last 2 minutes to get a bit of extra color on the tops but this is completely optional. Careful to set a timer or watch them closely so they don’t burn.
