'The Kitchn' recently published a recipe for homemade tater tots that are inspired by a beloved Swedish dish. A Hasselback potato is a variation of a baked potato, which involves cutting slices into the bottom before baking. The slices create extra crispy edges, while leaving the inside of the potato soft and moist.
This recipe puts an interesting twist on the traditional Hasselback potato by creating a bite-sized version of the dish. The homemade tater tots or 'Hasseltots' are made from baby potatoes. To recreate the taste and texture of a Hasselback potato, the recipe involves cutting thin accordion slices into each potato. The tots are then tossed in olive oil and baked in the oven until golden brown. To make the tater tots even more flavorful, you can add spices or some Parmesan cheese before baking.
With the holidays just around the corner, these tiny potato bites are a perfect party appetizer.
