Loaded Hassleback potatoes

The Hassleback Potatoes were invented by a Swedish Chef at Restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, and we have been enjoying them ever since. This particular style of potato is so versatile and easy to do- sliced into thin wedges but left joined at the bottom like a concertina, baked until the layers fan out into rounds of crispiness and served as is, or embellished with toppings of your choice. I had a pack of continental meat and some cheese and voila my humble potato was transformed into a feast of mediterranean flavours. This dish started out as a side but quickly became the main meal as I didnt want to spoil it by adding unnecessary extras and I found it so filling too. Its so easy to adapt this recipe to you and your families tastes by substituting the Salami or Chorizo for cooked ham and bacon or the Goats cheese for Cheddar. You could even let the kids add their own toppings before baking. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
