Hasselback potatoes are simply an ordinary potato thinly slices in such a way that when they bake the slices separate and create a fan like appearance. This allows for butter, herbs and seasonings to sink deep into the cracks and throughout the potatoes. They are crispy, flavorful and super impressive! Serve them up with Slow Cooker Beef Tips, Cast Iron Pork Chops or Instant Pot Chicken.

The hardest part of these potatoes is waiting for them to cook!
There are a couple of different ways to achieve this classic look, and there are a few tips to make it easier.
