If you are like me, you spend tons of time browsing through Pinterest looking for all sorts of foodie inspiration. When I saw a pin for Hasselback Potatoes, I fell in love. I had to try it, especially when the pin said…
“Better than fries! Cut potatoes almost all the way through, drizzle olive oil, butter, some sea salt, and pepper over top and bake @ 425 for 40 minutes.”
So that is exactly what I did. I could not wait for a delectable Hasselback potato to go with dinner.
It turned out dry AND mostly uncooked! I mean we are talking raw potato leather. I smothered it with sour cream but it made no difference. Thank god the smelts were so good and made up for the horrible potato hassle dish! I could not eat it but Reg made a valiant effort.
Perhaps if I had skewered it together it would not have dried out or remained raw in the middle but who knows? It was such a pain in the foodie A$$ I will not be trying it again. Screw the hasselback, I will make my Perfect Baked Potatoes instead.
Sometimes a pretty picture does not live up to the hype!
