Calling all brown butter fans! Just say no to plain roasted potatoes. These Brown Butter Hasselback Potatoes are going to be your new go-to side dish.
Are you on the brown butter wagon? If not, you need to jump on. The flavor that brown butter has cannot be duplicated. It is the perfect way to take any dish to a new level. But like all recipes that have few ingredients, make sure the ingredients you use are high quality.
So that's why we don't use just any butter. We choose to use Kerrygold butter on these mouthwatering potatoes. One bite and you will be hooked. When you brown the butter, the flavor is rich and nutty. It's like liquid gold in a pan.
Brown butter sounds fancy but is SO easy to make. Even people who don't like to cook can brown butter. I know you are thinking; sure, browning the butter is easy, but it's going to take forever to slice the potatoes like that!
Hasselback Potatoes used to intimidate. me. I love how they look but thought that slicing the potatoes would be a pain. But with this easy chopstick hack, the potatoes are ready to go in no time!
Simply place a pair of wooden chopsticks on a cutting board and place 3 potatoes between them. Using a sharp knife, cut potatoes into thin slices. The chopsticks will prevent the knife from slicing all the way through the potato. Repeat process with all of the potatoes. Boom. Hasselback potatoes made easy!
