Hasselback Potatoes with Seasoned Breadcrumbs
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Fill a large bowl with water. Place potatoes in water bowl. Gather two 1/2-inch-thick chopsticks or two 1/2-inch-thick wooden spoons; set aside.
- For potatoes, slice a thin slice, lengthwise from the bottom of each potato, so they can stand without rolling on the cutting board. Arrange chopsticks or wooden spoons lengthwise on opposite sides of one potato on the cutting board. Slice potato crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices, stopping the knife when it reaches the chopsticks or the wooden spoons to prevent slicing all the way through. Return sliced potato to water bowl. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
- Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; grease foil. Drain potatoes well and pat dry. Arrange potatoes in the prepared baking pan. Brush evenly with 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until tender. Remove from oven. Turn oven to broil.
- Preheat broiler. In a small bowl stir together bread crumbs, cheese, chives, thyme, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle potatoes evenly with crumb mixture. Slowly and carefully spoon on remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter, being sure to cover all of the crumb mixture.
- Broil potatoes 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until topping is golden. Serve immediately.

My mom has been making these for the last 60 plus years. When I was growing up in Sweden hasselbäck potatoes were everyday potatoes made a little extra special. My husband really gets into Swedish cooking so I am really spoiled.

I have made these for years, and they are delicious -- a little time consuming slicing. Very worth it, and the presentation is wonderful.
