The origin of Hasselback potatoes with garlic butter is Swedish and they say that it is that the recipe was created in the middle of the last century, in the first restaurant in the country located in Djurgården school, one of the islands of Stockholm...

And is that in a country where many potatoes are consumed you students decided to create different recipes to give your site to this lining as used everywhere. So they arrived at Hasselback potatoes

What characterizes these potatoes always Hasselback is the way to cut the potatoes before baking them. There are peeled versions, but experience has taught me that skin protects them, becomes crispy and gives them a lovely color, so I already no hair them never

Another important thing is the use of butter. You know that I love the extra virgin olive oil, but here the butter is a plus for flavor and creaminess. That fat attached to the temperature when bake is always very high, it makes that the potatoes are crisp but very fine

3 take a potato. Fully seat it on a cutting board. If necessary, make a cut so it sits and rests well on the table.

4 starting from one end of the potato, begin to cut slices but without cutting it entirely, so that the Fund will not be sectioned. Laminated in layers 3 or 4 mm or as thin as that is possible. Repeat with all the potatoes.

5. in a bowl, crush the garlic to a paste and mixed with the very soft butter and olive oil. A uniform paste.

6. with the help of a knife or a brush, go smearing all the potatoes with a little garlic butter for the part of the cuts, which will permeate well.
