Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

This is my version of the classic Swedish roast potato recipe, the potato is thinly sliced but not all the way through so it can resemble a fan or accordion when roasted. The outside is crisp and the inside is soft and creamy.

Traditionally Hasselback potatoes are drizzled with melted butter, salt, and pepper, then sprinkled with breadcrumbs. In my version, I lightly saute garlic, rosemary, turmeric, and salt in extra-virgin olive oil, then I drizzle it all over the potatoes.
