Recipe - Hasselbackspotatoes

Let's continue on the potato theme for another day...

This recipe is a classic from my native Sweden. It's named after the hotel/restaurant (Hasselbacken) in Stockholm where this dish supposedely was invented.

This dish works really nice with all kinds of meat.

Hasselbackspotatoes (serves 4)

8 medium potatoes
4 Tablespoons butter, melted and divided
3 Tablespoons breadcrumbs

Preheat the oven 220c/gasmark 7.

Peel the potatoes and slice down through each at 3mm (⅛-inch) intervals, but do not slice completely through. Pat potatoes dry with a paper towel.

Generously butter a baking dish and place the potatoes in it, cut side up. Baste the potatoes with 2 Tablespoons of the melted butter and sprinkle them with salt. Bake for 30 minutes.

Baste the potatoes with the remaining butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake for another 15 minutes or until done.
