Hasselback Potato

May 13, 2015

I’ve decided to use #PotatoWeek to launch this NEW and quicker style of recipe tutorials.  I’ll still be posting my normal videos once a week; so these are just a tasty bonus that you can look forward to on my channel. In addition to the video, I’ll be posting a more in depth version of the rapid recipes EXCLUSIVELY here, on ByronTalbott.com

Kicking this off with the Hasselback Potato! It’s a fun take on the classic Loaded Baked Potato and is a deffinite crowd please—as well as a “finger lickin’ good” experience!

You’ll end up with an “accordion” like Potato—still linked by one end.

 Bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes, or until they’re nice and crispy. Remove from the oven and lay on paper towels to drain excess grease.

    Hi Byron, made the hasselback potatoes on the weekend and they were lovely. I live in Australia and we don’t have Idaho potatoes so mine took a lot longer to cook, but all good. I also used a combination of a sharp sheep cheese and tasty as I had both in the freezer – very nice and sharp with the sour cream. Thanks for the recipe
