Originating in Sweden, Hasselback potatoes are generally made with basic white potatoes or new season potatoes. They have a combination of crispy baked skin on the outside and a creamy mash at the centre. I hope you enjoy my new sweet-potato version (see Maggie’s tip box)
Serve as a main or side dish. Very easy to prepare: hold the sweet potato firmly as you carefully make thin slices about two-thirds of the way through it. This will allow the potato to soak up the butter, adding richness and flavour – but any fat/oil will work: Olive oil, duck fat, chicken fat, beef suet, other herb butters etc.
