What Does Hasselback Mean?

The term “Hasselback” originates from the name of a famous Swedish restaurant called the Hasselbacken, which is located in Stockholm, Sweden. The restaurant is known for its classic Swedish cuisine and dates back to the 18th century. The term “Hasselback” became associated with a specific style of preparing and presenting certain dishes, notably potatoes.

The Hasselback potato, for example, is a popular Swedish side dish where a potato is thinly sliced but not completely through, leaving the slices attached at the base. These sliced potatoes are then typically seasoned with butter, breadcrumbs, and various herbs, resulting in a crispy, accordion-like texture when baked. This unique method of preparation, named after the restaurant, has become popular worldwide and is often used for various ingredients, not just potatoes, to create visually appealing and delicious dishes.

Now that we know about the dish’s background, let’s look at how to make this tasty side dish.

Ingredients

For this fabulous potato side dish, you need the following ingredients:

  • Potatoes
  • Butter
  • Avocado oil (olive oil works well, too)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Oregano
  • Garlic
  • Smoked paprika
Potatoes, melted butter, seasonings, and Parmesan cheese.

What size potato do I need?

Medium potatoes work best.  Alternatively, you can use 14 small potatoes.  If using smaller potatoes, check for doneness at the 45-minute mark.

Kitchen Equipment

To get uniform slices and for baking the potatoes, you’ll want to use the following:

  • 2 Chopsticks
  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife
  • 9×13 inch baking dish

Instructions

Start by preheating the oven to 400 Fahrenheit. Grease a large baking dish. Combine melted butter and oil in a small bowl.

Clean and pat dry potatoes. Place a potato on a cutting board. Next, place 2 chopsticks lengthwise on each side of the potato. With a sharp knife, slice the potato but not all the way through.

Slicing a potato.

The chopsticks should help keep you from cutting the entire potato. You want the slices to fan out a little bit. They will look like accordion slices. Repeat the same with all of the potatoes.

Place all potatoes cut-side up in the greased baking dish. Brush potatoes with melted butter and oil mixture. Make sure to coat between the potato slices.

In a small bowl, mix salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, dried oregano, garlic, and smoked paprika. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture on the potatoes and in between the slices.

Baking Time

Place the baking in the middle of the hot oven. Bake for 60 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Use a spoon to coat the potatoes from time to time with the melted butter from the baking dish.

Variations

Feel free to switch up the flavor profile of these potatoes. You can add cooked, diced bacon and green onions to the top after they have baked. Serve with a dollop of sour cream to complete the dish.

If you like using fresh herbs, you can add fresh thyme after the potatoes have baked.
