Here's a little Scandinavian treat I whipped up the other night! Even though I am Danish, and my mother used to cook all kinds of Scandinavian dishes when we were growing up, she never made these and now I'm super mad at her. These are pretty to look at, easy to make, and fun to eat. They are called Hassleback Potatoes and a Google search pulls up a ton of results for recipes.
I used some good sized russet baking potatoes, but I think any sized potato would work fine, you would just need to adjust the cooking times. Mine took a little over an hour, and even then the very center of each slice was still a bit too firm and we ended up nuking each potato for a couple minutes longer. I think next time I'll make smaller ones of a waxy variety.
You will need;
- 1 medium to large potato for each person (I used 2)
- 2-3 large cloves of garlic, sliced thin
- olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
We served these with some Pan Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Perfect Pan Fried Pork Chops.
