Finished Hasselback potatoes

Hasselback potatoes or Potato à la Hasselbacken (Swedish: Hasselbackspotatis) are a type of baked potato, where they are cut about halfway through into thin fan-like slices.[1]

They can be served as the main course,[2] or as a side dish or canapé.[3][4] Various toppings can be added, such as caraway seeds, paprika, or breadcrumbs.[5]

Origins[edit]

Hasselback potatoes were created in 1953 by Leif Ellison, a trainee chef at Hasselbacken restaurant on Djurgården, Stockholm.[6]
