Hasselback Potatos

Course Potato
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour


  • 8 Tbsp butter softened
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 6 baking potatoes


  • Preheat the oven to 450° F
  • Stir together the butter, olive oil, and some salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Place a potato between the handles of 2 wooden spoons or 2 chopsticks. Slice the potato into thin slices, leaving ¼ inch at the bottom unsliced; the spoon handles will prevent you from slicing the potato all the way through. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
  • Put the potatoes on a baking sheet and brush on half of the butter mixture.
  • Bake 30 minutes. Brush on the remaining butter mixture, getting between the slices.
  • Bake 30--45 more minutes until tender and crisp.
