Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes


Recipes source : Adapted from The Kitchn

These Hasselback potatoes are gorgeous! Some call it accordion potatoes because the slits fanned out to look like an accordion. Whatever you call them, they are simply beautiful and scrumptious!

Do not let their elaborate looks fool you into thinking they are so difficult to make. Actually they are so easy to prepare. All you need are potatoes scrubbed clean. Cut them into thin slits but DO NOT cut through. You may need to place the potato into a wooden spoon or use a pair of chopsticks at the base when cutting the potato. This is to ensure you do not cut right through the base of the potatoes.
 

Ingredients


6 medium-sized potatoes
3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
3 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp butter
salt to taste
fresh ground black pepper
A dash of paprika  (optional )


Method




1.  Place the scrubbed potato into the hollow of a wooden spoon.
2.  Using a knife to cut until you reach the wooden spoon. 
3.  The hollow of the spoon prevents you from cutting right through to the bottom.
4.  This way, the slits are almost to the end while the bottom is still intact.



1.  Place them on a baking tray.
2.  Brush with olive oil.
3. Place sliced garlic between the slits. 
4.  Sprinkle with salt and herbs of your choice. 
5.  Bake in preheated oven at 200 degree C for 40 minutes.
6.  Remove from oven. Brush with butter. You may add on more herbs or spices.
7. Continue to bake for another 30 to 40 minutes until the edges are crispy. 


Simply gorgeous!

  3. Hi Doris, your hasselback potatoes look very pretty and crunchy! I used too much butter in my first attempt, so the potatoes fell apart after baking, will try again soon (: Thank you for joining Little Thumbs Up!
