Hasselback Potatoes
Prep Time:
5 Minutes
Cook Time:
1 Hour
Difficulty Level:

2 tablespoons Cracked Black Pepper Rub

6 large potatoes, Yukon Gold, Russet, or Red Bliss, scrubbed

6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Toppings: scallions, chives, caramelized onions, crumbled bacon, grated cheese, sour cream


1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.

2. Slice straight down into the each potato stopping just short of cutting all the way through. You want the slices stay connected at the bottom of the potato. Space the slices 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch apart.

3. Arrange the potatoes in a baking dish and brush the potatoes with half the melted butter. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Cracked Black Pepper Steak Rub seasoning.

4. Bake 30 minutes.

5. Remove from oven. At this point the potatoes layers should start to separate (if needed give them a GENTLE nudge). Brush the layers with the remaining butter and Cracked Black Pepper Steak rub.

6. Return to oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes are crispy on the edges and easily pierced in the middles with a paring knife.

7. If you're adding toppings, stuff the slices and sprinkle over the top. Serve warm.

Recipe Tip:
Place a wooden spoon next to each potato and cut each potato stopping when the knife hits the potato. Try these potatoes with Herbes de Provence, Zesty Lemon Herb or Smoky Paprika Chipotle
