Created by its namesake in the 1700s, the Hasselbacken Hotel catered to potato lovers everywhere. It's the cut of the potato that makes or breaks it...literally. In order to move up to Hasselback status, the spud is sliced 3/4 of the way through, leaving the bottom untouched and unbroken.
Once it's sliced from end to end and fanned out, it sort of resembles a lobster tail. Now the fun stuff starts! Stuff a few thick pats of butter in between the potato slices. Don't be shy, use as much butter as you want!
I bet you can't wait to gobble up this savory dish! Not only is it tasty, but it also presents itself beautifully with its artistically cut slices. You can serve it as a scrumptious appetizer or even make a meal of it.
