#35 :: Garlic Hasselback Potatoes w/ Herbed Sour Cream

If you like garlic, you'll love these potatoes. They were perfectly cooked...crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. It was the perfect side dish to compliment the chicken!


  • 16 ounces red new potatoes
  • 3 to 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Herbed Sour Cream, recipe follows


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Using a wooden spoon as a cradle, place each potato in the spoon and make several parallel slits into each potato top making sure not to slice completely through. Place 3 garlic slices between slits at the crown of each potato. Toss in a medium bowl with butter and olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Bake until tops are crispy and potatoes are cooked through, about 1 hour. Transfer to a platter and top with Herbed Sour Cream.

Herbed Sour Cream:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Season, to taste, and refrigerate until use.

Makes 4 servings.
