I love simple.  Especially in the kitchen where I am anything but patient or talented.  This easy-to-use, simple, but smart tool makes you look like a professional chef.  I was sent a wooden gadget made by Scanwood that makes creating Hasselback Potatoes a breeze.  After seeing the finished dish, my husband said, “YOU made this??”  Trust me, that’s the ultimate compliment, *sheepish grin*.

Hasselback Potato

If, like me, you’d never heard of Hasselback Potatoes, they are accordian-cut baked potatoes.  Because you slice them thin on top, they are a combination of baked potato and french fries – crisp on the outside, smooth on the inside.  There are endless variations, skin-on; skin-off; naked; topped with any combination of cheese, bacon, butter, salt, pepper, spicy seasonings!  Oh, I just thought of doing this with a sweet potato – YUM!

This is what the package looks like in the store.

For my first attempt, I peeled the potatoes and put butter, salt, and pepper on them.  Watch – easy peasey….

Step One:  Peel potato and place on Scanwood gadget

2. place potato in gadget


Step Two:  Slice the potato.  The design of the Scanwood gadget lets you cut 3/4 of the way through the potato without going to the bottom.  Genius!

Step Three:  Place sliced potatoes in oven-proof dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and butter.  Bake for 40-60 minutes in a 400 degree oven.  (For a shortcut, next time I would partially cook the potato in the microwave.)  For the last two minutes, turn on the broiler for great color and crispness.
