Who's Up For a Hasselback Holiday Feast?

If you're a fan of those cleverly carved potatoes that bake up crisp, yet creamy, why not extend those knife skills to cover the entire menu? We're talking about a full-on, everything hasselback holiday feast, inspired by a new recipe from Chef John for Hasselback Turkey. Here's the menu:

The Star Attraction

High fives to Chef John for figuring out a novel way to combine turkey and stuffing by tucking the savory dressing into the slices of a breast. Watch the video below to get the full demo, start to golden, glorious finish.

On the Side

Of course, the supporting cast is going to include those terrific taters, along with cheesy Hasselback Biscuits, and these amazing Garlic-Parmesan Hasselback Zucchini from our friends at Eating Well.

And a Gorgeous Final Course

While apples and pumpkins top the most wanted list for holiday desserts, don't forget about pears. This firm fruit proves to be pretty perfect when it comes to making the hasselback cut for this beautiful Hasselback Pear Tart. Pro tip: Buy them a few days in advance and place the pears in a brown paper bag in a warm, dry place to ripen. Test the neck, near the stem, before slicing. It should give way a little bit.
