Preparation: 10 min. / Cooking: 1h / Servings: 4

Hasselbacken potatoes, in Swedish Hasselbackspotatis was created in 1953 by Leif Elisson de Värmland, who was a trainee chef at the Hasselbacken restaurant in Djurgården, Stockholm.

The principle is to cut the potato halfway into tiny slices. Drizzle with olive oil or butter and herbs, then baked in the oven. The potato opens fan-shaped and remains tender inside and crunchy outside. It can be sprinkled with breadcrumbs, almonds, cheese or other ingredients, depending on your taste. In this recipe, we serve it with an of garlic-Rosemary infused olive oil, to which we add butter and freshly grated Parmesan.
