In case you're wondering, what's with the name? Evidently, this recipe originated in Sweden and the name comes from the restaurant (Hasselbacken) that first served it.
|Delicious any way you slice it!|
3 lg. Russet potatoes (use your favorite potato)
1/2 stick butter
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. minced dried parsley
Optional Toppings - sour cream, bacon pieces, chives, shredded cheese, Parmesan cheese
Place potato between two butter knives and then slice the potato in small sections down to the butter knives and form one end of the potato to the other. [NOTE-The butter knives are to prevent you from slicing the potato completely through.]
Place potatoes in cast iron skillet and then brush with the seasoned butter. Fan the potato out as much as you can to allow the butter to run between the slices. Coat the tops of the potatoes as well.
Place potatoes in 450 oven and bake for 40-60 minutes (same as regular baked potatoes). Once the potatoes are done, a popular option is to sprinkle with favorite cheese and serve with sour cream, chives and/or bacon pieces. This is a great variation on the customary baked potato.
