Default Hasselback Potatoes

This was a new one for me and it looked intereting so I wanted to try it. In it's simplest form, just a couple of taters and some butter. I threw in some simple spices like garlic, parsley, and some onion powder. Plus, you can do these on the smoker, the grill or the oven. The thickenss of the slices are all a matter of personal preference as well. Some folks skin the tater, others leave the skin on as I did.

The deal here is to slice the potato but not all the way through so you have a back bone left at the bottom. The trick to doing this is a sharp knife and a couple of wooden spoons:



The prep:



You can continue to baste as much as you like. Some Hebrew Nationals thrown in for good measure:



Finished:



and the most important part, eating them. My kids loved them with ketchup of course. I drizzeled on some vinegar and a little fine ground kosher salt.

You can see the backbone on the bottom. They easily peal off. I loved the texture as well. Crsispy on the outside and tender inside but not so much that it falls apart. So, if you smoke them, I would suggest a short stop under the broiler to crisp them up a bit.



Anyway, that's what I did. Thanks for looking. I'm thinking this could be fun to see what people come up with. Time will tell I guess.

Hell yeah. Those look great. I am thinking garlic and a few red pepper flakes then hit with some parmesan cheese to finish. A great looking side dish.

Looks great, Pete! I think I'll melt some cheddar cheese on top and let it run down between the slices.

Very clever process with the spoons! I have some flat bamboo that will work perfect!!

Curious on the cook time/temp. I've cooked buckets of tatters, cubed, seasoned, in foil bags on the grill and they take about 15 min per side.

Baked taters... I keep trying!!!

I gotta hit ya with points for the new spud idear~!

Fantastic spuds! Kick ass idea! Thanks for sharing. This is next on the list. I'm with the onion sliced thin and garlic butter crowd...for now
