Hasselback potaoes are a traditional Swedish baked potato. This is a recipe I got from the foodgawker app on my iPad. I kept seeing these and really really wanted to try it. I have a love for potatoes. We recently got a free bag of potatoes at Foodmaxx, so I finally got my chance to try these. They are delicious! A nice change from the everyday baked potato, but not bad for you like french fries. These are super filling, I actually ate this by itself for dinner. I’ve also given you a calorie breakdown, which is something I will be adding to all my recipes from now on.

Place potato on a cutting board. Starting from one end make slits about an 1/8 of an inch apart, making sure not to cut all the way through.

Slice the garlic as thinly as possible.

Place one slice of garlic between every couple slits, until the garlic is evenly distributed. I personally love garlic so I put a slice in every slit. Brush with infused oil and bake for 45 minutes or until the outside is slightly crispy and the inside is soft.
