These potatoes are easy to make. Crispy on the outside. Soft and delicious on the inside. The perfect side to pair with whatever protein you want! Wondering where the name came from? Some people think it’s a potato variety, but the name Hasselback is taken from the Swedish restaurant where the potatoes were originally cut in a way that made them fan out.
