Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback potatoes have become a regular guest at our dinner table as Lenny takes charge of some menu planning as well as cooking.  This thrills me!  This recipe was developed out of the love of the potato, and all things creamy as we turned the traditional Hasselback into scalloped Hasselback potatoes.

This recipe is part of the series of recipes that I am developing for Whole Foods using Clover Stornetta products.  We have always been fans of Clover Stornetta products, and even more so, now that they have earned their Non-GMO certification.  What are GMOs?  Essentially, they are genetically modified organisms from plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from other plants and/or animals, as well as viruses and bacteria.  I like to think of if as our food being a science experiment.  Not sure about you but I have no interest in putting these foods into my body or the bodies of those I love.  Therefore, I make a very conscience effort to make sure the foods we eat are Non-GMO.  Clover Stornetta is one product I know that I can trust to feed us right.

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes

Let’s talk about this recipe as it is a dream.  The Hasselback potato was first created in the 1700′s in Sweden at a restaurant called Hasselbacken.  What makes this potato recipe an elegant recipe is the way the potato is prepared by cutting it into a fan, and then drizzling with garlic infused oil which creates a crispy outside and a creamy inside.  We took the recipe to another level by squeezing slices of butter and gruyere between every other potato layer, then baking them with thyme and garlic infused heavy cream.  It is insane, and would be a great side dish alongside a roast prime rib or pork roast during your holiday meals.

Remember the key to making this recipe look so elegant is all in how you cut the potatoes, and this is by far the best video we have seen showing how to do so.
