"This Swedish dish takes its name from Hasselbacken, the Stockholm restaurant where it was first served. The seasoned potatoes turn out crisp on the outside and tender on the inside." — POMPIER850

4 (8 ounce)
salt and pepper to taste
finely grated fresh Romano cheese
seasoned dry bread crumbs
I've made these from a recipe in my trusty Better Homes & Gardens cookbook with the plaid cover. They come out amazing and are sooo tasty. One additional tip: I find it easier to place the handle of a wooden spoon on either side of the potatoes when slicing them to prevent the knife from going too far down. Much easier than using the bowl of a spoon.
I was intriqued by the concept but wasn't very impressed with the outcome. As others have noted these were on the dry side, and I'm not sure I'm so fond of bread crumbs and Romano cheese on potatoes. Might consider trying these again without peeling the potatoes, drizzling them with butter and some herbs or seasoning, covering them with foil until nearly done, then uncovering them at the end of the cooking time.
These potatoes were different and really delicious. I used olive oil instead of butter, turned the potatoes over for about five minutes to crisp up the tops and once nicely browned, I flipped them again, added quite a bit of fresh bread crumbs which I had seasoned with garlic and onion powders, Italian seasonings, black pepper and lots of parm. Everyone loved these. Thanks!
BIG fan of these! They weren't difficult to make at all, and took no more time (less, actually) than baking a potato in the oven or on the grill. I left the skins on mine for the nutrients and set in a wooden spoon to cut (it took me a few cuts to get the hang of it). I skipped the butter and just drizzled w/a little EVOO. For the second part, I topped w/a mixture of bread crumbs (panko would be even better!), parm, garlic salt, crushed red pepper, and chives). I'm not a huge potato fan (unless they are deep fried, of course), but I really like these. These will be a potato staple at the LTH house! TY!
We loved the presentation of these potatoes, and the next time I make them I'll add more seasonings to the butter (I used a mixture of olive oil and butter). I used minced garlic, but it mostly just fell to the bottom of the pan, so next time I'll use garlic salt in the butter. I used panko, but I think seasoned Italian breadcrumbs would make a better choice. Nice to have these to add to the rotation of potatoes!
These were super! I also turned them over and let them brown on the top. Also, I added way more bread crumbs than recommended. I spread the slices apart to make sure crumbs were in there also. I also added some garlic powder. My husband loved these. i will make these again.
I have been making these for years, the presentation is wonderful, as for taste, any spices can be used, to change the flavor, from plain and simple to very spicy, its all in personal taste. 5 stars. Well worth the time and effort.
These were unique, good tasting potatoes. I left my potatoes unpeeled to keep the vitamins, and they were still good. Very impressive look.
