Swedish version of baked potatoes. These baked potato fans, also known as “accordion potatoes”, were named after the Hasselbacken Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden that first introduced them in the 1700s. They are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside and make an excellent accompaniment to baked cod, and roasted wagyu beef, or simply as an appetizer served with herb sour cream or blue cheese dressing. Potatoes may be fanned in advanced and placed in cold water to prevent discoloring until ready to use. Dry potatoes well before baking.

Creamy Gorgonzola DressingHasselback Potatoes
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 clove Garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce, or to taste
  • 80 g Crumbled Gorgonzola
  • 6-8 Oval-shaped potatoes, medium sized
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 4 Rosemary sprigs
  • Salt

  1. In medium bowl, stir together all dressing ingredients except cheese. Gently fold in the crumbled Gorgonzola. Dressing may be made 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Rinse and dry the potatoes. Grease a baking pan with a tablespoon of olive oil. Put each potato, in turn, in the bowl of a wooden spoon, and cut across at about 3mm intervals.
  3. Brush the rest of olive oil all over each potato, then arrange in the baking pan together with garlic cloves and rosemary sprigs. Sprinkle with salt. Bake the potatoes in the middle of the oven until tops are crispy and potatoes are cooked through, 45 minutes. Serve warm with creamy blue cheese cheese dressing.

These are such pretty potatoes and I've never seen a dressing with them. What a lovely idea Angie. Gorgonzola is creamy goodness.

Kristine Cummings 21/10/11 13:32

The presentation is beautiful and they look delicious,yum!

Happy Cook / Finla 21/10/11 13:39

Wowo those potatoes lok so so good and I love that special dressing too.

Joy 21/10/11 13:46

The potatoes look so cool.

Rosemary 21/10/11 13:57

Has to be one of my favorite ways to have a potato, better than baked, better than mashed. (Although I'm quite fond of any ol' spud, as my scales will tell you when I overdo.) I'm always interested in the history of dishes, too. Did I mention I also love Gorgonzola? This is a keeper!

TasteHongKong 21/10/11 14:18

The potato baked in this way is one of those I like; though I have yet to try your dressing, it sounds interestingly different.

Melanie 21/10/11 14:39

What an interesting way of baking the potatoes! Great presentation!

Faith 21/10/11 15:05

Tina 21/10/11 15:17

The dressing is something I would make and keep around! It has such great flavor and would do wonderfully to zip up a variety of things. Great pairing with the potatoes. Well done.

Eva@ kitcheninspirations.wordpress.com 21/10/11 21:05

Claudia 25/10/11 18:57

I often do a baked potato with gorgonzola dressing. I am definitely trying your version - it has more nuance of taste than mine. And from the 1700's? I love the heritage of this!

FOODESSA 25/10/11 19:27

I've made these several times and yet, have never gave them a gorgonzola spa treatment. Angie...love the ingredients in this splurge ;0)

Ciao for now,

nancy at good food matters 25/10/11 22:38

I love hasselback potatoes, but have never elevated them with a luscious gorgonzola dressing.

Alison 27/10/11 16:25

These look amazingly delicious, simple to prepare, and elegant...win, win, win for me!

Anonymous 27/10/11 20:08

Can you do this with Rutabagas?


Angie's Recipes 27/10/11 20:55

@AnonymousYou meant Rutabagas radish? I am sure you can cut the root veggie into the same shape, but it wouldn't be the same.

Bree 27/10/11 21:23

Yum! Those look amazing!

Sahar Hawasli 28/10/11 09:34
