Potatoes Hasselback {roasted to perfection with all your favorite flavors}

What are potatoes hasselback you might wonder and how did I decide to make such a strangely named recipe? This recipe is part of the Secret Recipe Club(read more about SRC). This month my assignment was to make a recipe from Cook, Lisa, Cook. It was hard deciding between strawberry soup, lemon tart and hasselback potatoes, but in the end I decided to do the potaoes because they looked scrumptious and I had all the ingredients on hand.

I don’t really know how hasselback potatoes got their name but it is more or less a fancy baked potato stuffed with butter and garlic and then cooked to crunchy on the outside, fluffy and tender on the inside, perfection. Then, if you want to be even more decadent sprinkle on some cheddar and in the last part of baking and serve with a dollop of sour cream and chives fresh from the garden.  We served these with coffee rubbed, grilled pork chops and steamed broccoli from the garden and it was a fantastic meal!

These stuffed potatoes only took a few minutes to make and they were so yummy.
