How To Make Baked Potato Fans (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Have you been wanting something more from your baked potato? Though there's nothing wrong with a perfectly baked potato with a fluffy interior, sometimes you just want to shake things up a bit. That's where this amazing baked potato recipe comes in.

Known as potato fans or hasselback potatoes, these spuds are thinly sliced crosswise, three-quarters of the way through the potato. After rubbing the cuts with melted butter or oil and sprinkling with the herbs and spices of your choice, you bake the potatoes until crisp. The result is the perfect cross between a baked potato and a potato chip -- a crusty, crispy exterior with a creamy, fluffy interior.

The folks at Weelicious have the recipe and the video (above) that show you how easy it is to make. You can use either Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes. Not only does it make a great new side dish for dinner, it's also great for an appetizer -- just rip off a piece and dunk it into your favorite dip, vinaigrette or melted butter.
