With the holidays just around the corner, we could use more inventive ways to use potatoes. Potatoes are a naturally gluten free food and are also inexpensive.
Hasselback Potatoes are a great addition to any meal and look great on the plate.
Plus, they taste good!
If you want to add something truly elegant, add a drizzle of truffle oil on the top. Keep in mind though, it is an expensive ingredient.
6 large white potatoes, cleaned well
4 Tbsp butter, cut into thin slices
2 Tbsp good olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
Coarse sea salt and fresh pepper
Instructions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
With a sharp knife, cut potatoes into slices, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Leave at least 1/4 of the potato on bottom.
Place potatoes on a baking sheet.
In between the layers, place some garlic and a thin slice of butter.
Drizzle olive oil over each potato as well as a good sprinkle of sea salt and fresh pepper.
Bake in oven for an hour, basting potatoes with olive oil from pan occasionally.
Remove from oven and serve.
Before serving, a drizzle of truffle oil is wonderful.
