Loaded with Parmesan and garlic bits, these Hasselback Potatoes with Parmesan and Roasted Garlic are the stuff side dishes should be! With meaty potatoes and hearty flavor, they make a worthy accompaniment to any of your favorite meat entrees.
I’ve been meaning to buy a mandolin for awhile but my procrastinating self never got around to it so I was pretty stoked to find on my recent trip to TJ Maxx one for only $3.99. I went home pretty excited to try my new toy and what better way to play with a mandolin than making accordion-style potatoes?
These Hasselback potatoes with Parmesan and roasted garlic are like a potato side dish with major attitude but despite their diva status, they are actually low maintenance. They pull together pretty easy and flavor can be ramped up with just about any herbs and spices you have on hand which, in my case, were minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and Parmesan cheese. I see the addition of crisp bacon bits, chopped green onions or Ranch seasoning to work magic here, too. 🙂
I sliced my potatoes at about 1/4 inch thick as I like them “meaty”. The thinner the slice, the crispier the potatoes!
Give these potatoes a try for dinner tonight, they’re sure to be a hit with the crowd! And if you’re looking for more delicious potato ideas, make sure to check out these recipes from my food blogger friends:
