These are a easy and delicious side dish, and they look they actually are hard to make! The hubs was horrified and thought that I had created them and given them the name Hasselback after that quarterback but I assured him they already had the name and were created by a restaurant in Sweeden. I already named our son Brady, how many things do we have to do in honor of the best Quartahback Eva (best quarterback ever for those of you who don’t speak Boston) that led the Patriots to be the most underrated dynasty in football history???
Serves 4 Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour
4 large russet potatoes
1 T olive oil
4 cloves garlic, sliced thin ala “Goodfellas”
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Using a very sharp knife slice each potato across creating a slit, but not going all the way through, just go about halfway. Continue to cut slits about 1/4 inch apart. Next, put a piece or two of your sliced garlic into each opening. Continue with all your potatoes. Sprinkle with olive oil and rub each potato in your hands so they are all coverd. Now sprinkle with S&P. Place them into the oven (you don’t really need a baking sheet but you can use one if you want) and bake at 400 for 1 hour. Remove and serve with some sour cream. I flavored mine with garlic, horseradish, and chives. SO GOOD!
