  1. Hasselback Potatoes au Gratin

    Hasselback potatoes were first introduced in the Hasselbacken Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden. The russet potatoes are thinly sliced but left joined at the bottom. Create a rustic, yet elegant, dish by oven-roasting the potatoes in a rich cheese sauce. While the inside of the potatoes turn soft and creamy, the outside layers fan out into rounds of crispy bliss.

  2. Homemade Potato Chips

    We know potato chips are easy to just buy ... but it's hard to beat a home-fried and custom-seasoned potato chip made from russet potatoes.
