"I love this recipe but use Olive Oil. My original recipe was called Hasselback Potatoes. They were scrubbed, left whole and sliced many times from the top almost to the bottom. That allowed OO and seasonings to really sink in and they baked up more crispy. If you cannot easily slice or score them raw, I found that nuking them for 2-3 minutes helps soften, then finish in the oven. Another method to do this is using olive oil, 1/2 to 1 envelop of french onion or similar soup mix, coat in ziploc and let set a bit, then bake in casserole dish until nicely golden and tender. The olive oil coats better and prevent drying out. Thanks for recipe!"
"My teenage daughter loves potatoes of any kind and I was looking for a lower fat alternative to loaded baked potatoes. This was it. My daughter, husband, and I all liked it. I even bought more potatoes so I could make it again."
"Are these not also call Hasselback potatoes? I really like these because you can put any toppings you want on them. Garlic pwr or garlic salt is a must at our house. In our over it took 60 min but the potatoes were on the large side. Be sure to spray the skin with Pam to keep them nice and soft."
"Great flavor, served with barbecued ribs and everyone loved them. Scoring the potatoes made it very easy to get the size portion you wanted with no waste."
"I'd prepared these potatoes & instead of using parsley, I'd used 1 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese! I kept the paprika, butter, salt and pepper the same! I found this side dish delicious! I'd baked these potatoes 50 to 60 minutes or until potatoes were tender! Thank you for this recipe!delowenstein P.S.. I'd prepared this recipe when I'd seen it featured in Taste of Home!"
