Hassleback Fingerling Potatoes

Hasselback  potatoes - This method gets flavor into the potato and produces a crispy texture on the outside, and tender on the inside. Additional benefits of cutting thin slices into the potatoes - looks fancier and makes them cook faster.

I used fingerling potatoes as it cooks faster due to the size and long shape. But you can use baby potatoes.

The trick to cutting the potatoes - Place each potato between two chopsticks and use  a knife to slice through the potato – the chopsticks will prevent the knife from going all the way through.

To infuse garlic flavors,  I first  sautéed garlic in oil in a cast iron skillet and tossed in the potatoes before placing in the oven.  Using an oven proof skillet makes it  convenient for serving as well.

If you don’t have an oven proof skillet, add all ingredients on baking sheet and roast as directed.
