First of all, what is a Hasselback potato? Or, as I like to call them, Pillbug Potatoes?

It’s a side dish that gets it’s name from a Swedish restaurant, Hasselbacken. The potatoes are sliced, seasoned, slathered in butter and oil, and popped into a hot oven until the edges are crispy and the middle is creamy like a baked potato.

I know, you are ready for it.

It looks difficult, but even the cuts are quick and easy. All you need are two utensil handles or chopsticks with the potato between, so you don’t cut all the way through. See? Easy as pie.
