People also make Hasselback potatoes for the pretty presentation.
Nice catch on the presentation thing. Hasselbacks are tasty, but not any more so than American fries, either made from cooked, skin-on potatoes, or freshly sliced and fried potato rounds, in either bacon fat or butter. When done right, both have those beautiful crispy edges and taste very similar. But I have to ask, which one looks more impressive?
