Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes

By Eating Whole

It's a beautiful love affair between baked potatoes and oven fries!


  • 4 organic russet or yukon gold potatoes

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • salt, to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • ¼ cup sour cream (optional)

  • 3 Tbsp chives, chopped (optional)

  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped (optional)

  • spritz of fresh lemon juice (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Let's slice our taters! Key: Be sure to slice each slit down to about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Slice your potatoes crosswise, 1/8 inches apart (remember not to slice all the way through!).

  2. Place your prepared potatoes on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle each potato with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pop your potatoes in the oven to bake for about 1 hour, until golden. Top with optional toppings, if desired.

  3. I paired my hasselback potatoes with my honey chili tempeh bacon and a large quinoa salad, topped with my creamy dijon dressing.

  4. Enjoy eating whole!
