Hasselbug Potato

I have seen so many creative ways to prepare Hasselback potatoes and I have always thought they were alive and moving. Well, I made one that looks like this.

 One can serve it with herbed sour cream or any preferred spice. This one I just brushed it with garlic infused salted butter, baked it and garnish with some chive and cayenne pepper. I want mine simple and creepy.
If you dare to make it, here's how. Score the potato lengthwise and thinly slice it all the way but leaving about a quarter of an inch thick as base. Fan it slightly and insert the match sticks from the scorings. It should start looking like a bug in your hand in no time. Enjoy!

  10. I've never seen a hasselburg that looks like this! That's just hilarious. My mum used to make the regular sort as a special treat. She was Danish. How long does it take to do one?

  11. Hi Zeb, say hello to your mum for me. I love Denmark and the Danes are such lovely people. - It took me a short 30 minutes to make one but it took longer to photograph because it would not keep still.
