    LOVE your video! I’m on my way over right now to eat the other potato, that’s okay, right?

    Great video, you made the recipe look easy to do and it had enough of the garlic and spice mixture to give it some flavor. Wish Camp Blogaway’s chef had baked them long enough and added the “sauce” to turn out just like Sara did!

    Valentina! You are a sweetheart <3 Thank you!! And ya know, it was at Camp Blogaway that you and I shared our first Hasselback potatoes together — that was a fun dinner! xoxo

    Stunt Tater… It is such an honor to have the world famous Stunt Tater complement my Hasselback preparation :) I learned from the best! xoxo

    I find myself watching this at least once a week just to watch you channel Timberlake for 2 seconds. Adorable.

    Thanks for this Sara, I love the video. The recipe I’ve been following (from Alastair Little) differs a little in that it suggests the garlic stays in the pan (but risks getting bitter as you point out) uses butter as well as oil (yum) and has a tip for the knifely chellenged (me) which is to insert a skewer in the base of the potato lengthways so that your knife will hit it and not risk cutting all the way through, which I’ve done too many times. Cheers!

    Hi simon!
    Thank you! The skewer tip is terrific! More foolproof than the cutting boards… I guess you get a little pinhole when you pull the skewer out, but no big deal. I just saw another version of Hasselback potatoes with slices of garlic baked in between each potato slice. I think if you love garlic, you can go as crazy as you want… Thanks for visiting :)
