Recipe for Hasselback Potatoes

A square dish with a Hasselback Potato stuffed with brie cheese being lifted out.
Hasselback Potatoes
Disclaimer: For the upcoming movie - Burnt starring Bradley Cooper, Castello® asked me to come up with a recipe using one of their cheeses. I received a package in order to inspire me to develop a recipe and Castello has offered readers of my blog a prize pack (keep reading to find out more!). This recipe does not hinge on only using Castello cheese, you can use any cheese you like.

Dan and I have been wanting to make this style of potatoes for a while! I love how they look and more importantly how crispy each slice is after they have been baked in the oven. Having bits of melty cheese on each slice is a huge bonus too! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Try not to burn your fingers on them as they come out of the oven sizzling with melted cheese!

Hasselback Potatoes RecipeThis recipe makes 4 servings

Ingredients:
  • 4 Potatoes
  • Grated or sliced cheese for stuffing (this recipe uses Castello's Brie)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
Directions:

  1. Wash and dry 4 potatoes. Do not peel as the skin adds flavour. Rub olive oil over the skin of the potatoes.
    4 potatoes scrubbed and ready to be prepped for hasselback potatoes.
  2. Using a knife make thin vertical slits 3/4 of the way down the potato (don't cut all the way through the potato). Try to cut as thin as possible. Use the same method on all the potatoes.

  3. Slice the cheese you want to use for your hasselback potatoes. In this particular version of the recipe I used Castello's Brie cheese; approximately half the circle cut into pieces.

  4. Insert pieces of cheese into each slice of potato. The potatoes will start to accordion out.
    Picture from above of the hasselback potatoes being stuffed with brie cheese.

    From above: hasselback potatoes sliced and stuffed with brie cheese.
  5. After inserting cheese into every potato, drizzle more olive oil onto the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 400F for 45 minutes in an oven proof dish.

These hasselback potatoes make an excellent addition to any meal as a side or even as a main dish. Experiment with different cheeses and potatoes to see what works best for your family and palate. For our testings, we used two different potatoes for this recipe. One was the Colomba potato and the red potato.

It will look just like the one below!

    ReplyDelete
  151. @angela mitchell The bonus about the seaweed salad is that it keeps decently well in the fridge for a bit (unless you eat it all up in one sitting) :)

    ReplyDelete
  152. Yeah! You don't even have to make your own kimchi. We usually buy a tub of it from a mom & pop place that makes kimchi all the time. Kimchi fried rice is so good too!

    ReplyDelete
  153. @cr@Crystal Chelli yeah we have gone through many iterations of pizza dough and this is by far the best one we have made so far :)

    ReplyDelete
  154. @Jenn Erin L Perfect! Kimchi has so many different uses. We usually keep a tub of it at the back of our fridge so we can not only make the cauliflower but also kimchi fried rice, kimchi grilled cheese and more!

    ReplyDelete
  155. great choice! Try it out and come back to let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  156. I love snacking so that is why guacomole or hummus dips are first on my list when I get home from work or as an appetizer before dinner for guests :D

    ReplyDelete
  158. for sure! If you try it out, let me know how it goes

    ReplyDelete
  163. @BethanyM It truely is! Also you can freeze part of the batch if you don't want to use it all up right away!

    ReplyDelete
  164. @Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard Yes! definitely try it out and let me know how it goes :)

    ReplyDelete
  165. @aly3360 It is super tasty. I honestly find that now that I have made it myself there really is no reason to buy it anymore! Plus, if you make a batch you can always freeze half of it to have another day. I can certainly look for more flavour options. there is one that I LOVE at the farmers market and end up buying. However, I am thinking I could really make it myself too :) Will blog it and let you know. Just subscribe to my mailing list to get notified when I do.

    ReplyDelete
  166. @JAL I can assure you that it is not only fun to make but super tasty too! Kicks up your veggie game substantially :)

    ReplyDelete
  167. Yes! It is a dessert and/or breakfast staple at our place now :)

    ReplyDelete
