Best Hasselback Potatoes

This is the Best Hasselback Potatoes recipe. The potatoes are coated in soy sauce, olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon, fresh garlic and sprinkled with lemon zest. What an amazing result. They are crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. 
You may be wondering, how did I slice the potatoes so perfectly. Well, It’s no secret, I used a HasselBack Potato Slicing Rack. You can always use a pair of chopsticks and 2 rubber bands. I place the potato in between the chopsticks and then place the rubber bands on the ends, so that they don’t move around while slicing into the potatoes. Then slice until you reach the chopsticks.

In this recipe, I recommend using medium – small potatoes because they bake faster than the bigger ones. You can also use the tiny new potatoes, they are so good and new! 
The reason why I enjoy presenting my Roasted Hasselback Potatoes as a side dish is because they are so rich in flavor and they look so presentable.

  • 1 lemon zest
  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 425F.
