Hasselbackspotatis – Stockholm Sweden Potatoes
First of all – I love your inspiring newsletter, and I also wanted to say how much I appreciates your Crockpot Cooking Made Simple. The book has helped me a lot.
And … I wanted to share a recipe. This is a wonderful way to prepare potatoes. It was “invented” at the famous restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, Sweden, and it’s very popular. Hope you like it! (I omit the cheese from the recipe – I like that better.)
12 medium-sized potatoes
3 tbsp butter or margarine
3 tbsp grated cheese
1-2 tbsp dry bread crumbs
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C (425 degrees F).
Place the peeled potatoes in a wooden spoon and make vertical slices, 2-3 mm apart, about 3/4 of the way through the potatoes. The wooden spoon will protect the final 1/4 of the potatoes.
With the cut-side up, place the potatoes in a buttered baking dish.
Melt half of the butter and pour it over the potatoes, then sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 30 minutes, now and then basting the potatoes with molten butter.
After 30 minutes, sprinkle over bread crumbs and, if desired, grated cheese.
Continue to bake for another 15 minutes.
(I usually make more potatoes than this – cuz I love it. Doesn’t affect cooking time, but you might need more butter.)
Hope you like it!
