This Thanksgiving, skip traditional mashed potatoes and try something new. These hasselback-style potatoes smothered in garlic butter are unbeatable.
Ingredients 6 russet potatoes 5 tablespoons unsalted butter 5 minced garlic cloves Italian shredded cheeses fresh parsley Tools used Instructions Preheat oven to 425° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or prepare with oil. Place a potato between two chopsticks and make thin slices all the way down, making sure not to slice all the way through and keeping the bottom in tact (hence, using the chopsticks). Melt butter in a sauce pan and mix in minced garlic until fragrant. Remove from heat and brush garlic butter over potatoes. Cook potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Italian shredded cheeses (mozzarella, Parmesan, etc.). Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and garnish with more cheese and fresh parsley.
