A note about serious food allergies

Hasselback potatoes have the most complicated-sounding name for the simplest of preparations: all you do is make little slits in the taters where delightful flavors can be stuffed into. Here, that's nutty Parmesan cheese, adding deep delight to the spuds. (And even if you make an oopsie and cut all the way through… flavor is still delicious.) Now, say it with us: I want my hassel-back, hassel-back, hassel-back…

  1. 1

    Bake the Hasselback Potatoes

    Halve potatoes lengthwise. Place potatoes on a clean cutting board, flat side down. Make cuts ¼" apart, cutting ¾ of the way through potatoes. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, flat side down. Drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Roast in hot oven until tender, 20-25 minutes. Carefully, sprinkle with half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish). Bake again until cheese is bubbling and lightly browned, 5-8 minutes. While potatoes bake, prepare ingredients.
