What is it about potatoes that just make everything ok? I grew up in a 100% meat and potato household and the thought of not eating potatoes at a meal makes me a little stabby. For real, when I first moved to New York I was shocked at the amount of pasta vs. potatoes everyone ate. I mean, it’s potatoes. What’s not to love? You can eat them boiled, fried, baked, grilled….

Ok, let’s not turn this into a Forrest Gump situation. You get it. Potatoes are awesome and versatile!

My stepmom used to make Hasselback potatoes all the time except we never called them that. I just referred to them as “the potatoes that are sliced but still together and covered in butter and tons of garlic.”

I guess Hasselback is easier.

For this lemon herb Hasselback potatoes recipe, I just thinly sliced a few russet potatoes (shout out to the humble russet!) and flavored them up with TONS of lemon and garlic. It’s the perfect combination of flavors and the mixture of butter and olive oil is straight up perfection.

Ugh, I really need to learn a new work besides perfect BUT they really are. They remind me of being a kid but with a little more flavor and a sprinkle of parsley.

Oh, pro tip! When you make Hasselback potatoes you slice down the potato but don’t fully slice down because you want the potato to stay intact. To keep from slicing too far into the potatoes, lay a chopstick on both sides of the potato before cutting so that when you slice down the chopsticks will stop the knife at exactly the same depth and make your cuts beautifully consistent.
