Baked Hasselback Potatoes

Lynn demonstrates a very easy side dish that would be a great side dish for a Holiday meal.


  • 4 medium potatoes, scrubbed with the skin left on
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pinch of smoked paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped chives, for garnish

Preheat oven to 425°.  

Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8" intervals, cutting to within ¼ of the bottom.  Be careful not to slice all the way through.  The potato will fan out a bit as it bakes.

Combine olive oil, garlic , salt, smoked paprika and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.

Lay the potatoes on a baking sheet.  Carefully insert pinches of this mixture in between the slits of the potatoes.  Rub the outsides of the potatoes with the residual oil.

Bake for about 40-45 minutes.  The inside should be cooked through and the outside of the potato should be a bit crispy.

Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and chives.
