Hassleback Potatoes and a Linky Party

Once again I was browsing around Pinterest and saw these lovely Hasselback potatoes. I didn't know what they were called. I was calling them accordion potatoes and I told my son they were caterpillar potatoes but regardless of what they are called they are adorable and delicious.

4 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 stick of butter
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400. Wash and dry potatoes. Find the spot where the potato best lays flat and slice starting from one end. The slices should be thin but not paper thin. Do this will all your potatoes. You can use small potatoes or big russets. Place potatoes on a cookie sheet and set aside. Now in a small saucepan melt the butter and add the minced garlic. Cook one  minuet. Salt and pepper the potatoes and then with a spoon ladle the garlic bits and butter between the slats in the potatoes and bake for 35 minuets to 1 hour + depending on the size of the potatoes. I bakes mine for about 40 minuets as they were small potatoes.

I just added a recipe for coconut ice from my Christmas blog. I love your linky idea-thanks for having me!

I tried to add the button but it didn't seem to work so I added a link instead.

Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe.

Best wishes,

Oh my gosh I can't believe you posted this! I am Swedish and we used to have these potatoes on special occasions when I was growing up. They are so yummy. FYI - placing the potato in a wooden spoon before slicing helps you avoid accidentally slicing all the way through.
