Hasselback Potatoes (or accordion potatoes) were first introduced in the 1700s by a restaurant located in Stockholm named Hasselbacken. I found several variations for this recipe, and I decided to play around a little. The next time you want to impress company, these take just a few minutes to prepare. They're versatile, too. You can even add cheese in between each slice, for extra gooey deliciousness!
