Zaatar Hasselback Potatoes look fancy and fabulous! But with only 3 ingredients, they’re seasoned, buttery and super quick & easy to make!
I always love seeing hasselback potatoes. All the thin slices that make the potato look almost like a work of art! Like an accordion potato!….Ok, lemme stop. But those slices aren’t just for looks you know! You can stuff things with all kinds of goodies! The options are endless and that’s where it’s fun! Cheese, spices, herbs, you name it! So the dryness that can sometimes bring a potato down, is no longer an issue because each bite gets toppings!! Woohoo!
Thinly slicing potatoes makes for an amazing space to add delicious toppings! And they look great too!
- 4 small potatoes (even in size)
- 2 tbsp ghee
- 2 tsp zaatar (extra for topping)
- salt & pepper to taste
- chives (for topping)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Begin at the very front of the potato and cut a slice into it, stopping a little bit before going through. Repeat the slicing process as close together as you can without cutting off a slice or cutting all the way through the potato. (You can go back later and deepen cuts after you finish the whole process and this will allow the potato layers to open up more). Repeat on all potatoes.
Sprinkle salt and pepper into the slices. Then mix together ghee and zaatar and with a spoon, drizzle all into slices. Bake potatoes for 20-30 min until potatoes are tender and cooked through. Top potatoes with extra zaatar and chives.
Feel free to add additional toppings. Check the slices by poking with a sharp knife to see if they're cooked through.
