Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

Written by chanie on November 14th, 2011

Hassleback potatoes are the Swedish version of a baked potato, and are named for Hasslebacken, the Stockholm restaurant where it was first served. Traditionally, hassleback potatoes are made with white potatoes and are sometimes stuffed with garlic cloves. I came up with this sweeter version, using thin slices of apples, and topping it off with some sweet maple syrup and a sprinkle of brown sugar. The sweet potatoes came out soft on the inside, and crispy on the outside while the apples caramelized and crisped around the edges. With the autumn colors, rustic styling, and sweet taste, hassleback sweet potatoes make the perfect accompaniment to your Thanksgiving feast!

  5. This sounds FABULOUS!!! My dd’s been begging me to do hassleback potatoes again, but she can’t stand fruit in side dishes, so maybe I’ll do a regular one alongside…
    No idea why I’ve never seen your blog before, but I’m subscribing now. :-)

    This seems like the perfect Rosh Hashanah side dish! Do you think that can be made ahead and frozen?
