If you’re Swedish there is no doubt you’ve had Hasselback potatoes. If you’re not Swedish Im guessing you have heard about them and maybe also had the change to taste them. They are delicious! No further description needed. And if you haven’t tried them you really have to! This “hasselbacking” method is genius and should be used for other purposes as well! I’ve tried hasselbacking most of the fruits and vegetables I like. Pumpkins, pineapples, zucchinis, aubergines, sweet potatoes, kiwis, tomatoes… ok I thing you get the point. I’ve been “hasselbacking” my way though all my favorite fruits and veggies! And it kind of never goes wrong! But amongst all the hasselbacked dishes I’ve made I really had to share this one with you! Hasselbacked apples. Do I even have to describe this dish further? I guess I don’t have to, but I will. Think of a warm, tender, soft and flavorful baked apple, sliced with coconut oil/vegan butter drizzling down between the slices… and then topped with cinnamon. Ok, I need to take a break just to go and make a new batch of these delicious apples!! I made my apples soft and tender, but you can also turn on the broiler in the oven at the end and make them a bit more crunchy on the slices giving them such a nice texture and roasted feeling. These hasselbacked apples are perfect to serve for breakfast or an afternoon snack with some yogurt or as a dessert with ice cream on top!
A few tips:
- Use sweet apples to get the best result.
- Slice the apples thinly, not going all the way though.
- If you have a big soup spoon then put your apple half into it and then slice the apple. That prevents you from slicing it all the way though.
- I baked my apples without boring them. But if you prefer more crunchy edges put the broiler on for 5-10 minutes. But keep a close eye on them so they donate get burnt.
- Serve these apples for brakfast or snack with some yogurt….
- Or serve them as a dessert either with yogurts or topped with ice cream.
