Want a show-stealing holiday side that looks like it took all day to make but only takes a few minutes to prepare? Then make Hasselback potatoes your go-to.
If you’ve never had Hasselback potatoes, you’re in for a real treat. The dish was created in the 1950s at the hotel Hasselbacken in Stockholm, Sweden, and has since gained popularity around the world.
To prepare, partially cut the tops of potatoes into thin slices before baking them for a stunning, accordion-like effect. Below, the Williams-Sonoma Test Kitchen shows you exactly how it’s done—and throws in a Hasselback hack for good measure.
