I thought I must share this unique, tasty and elegant way to serve potatoes. So easy yet so delicious.
If you like a twist to classic baked potatoes Hasselback potatoes are the perfect alternative; they are a Swedish invention. Their name comes from a restaurant in Stockholm called Hasselbacken Hotel.
All you do is slice the potato to create slits, but making sure not to cut right through the potato. I can guarantee they are worth the effort.
The trick is to put two wooden spoons on each side of the potato so the knife won't go right through.
Serve them as a side dish.
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 45 minutes
Wash the potatoes well. Put two wooden spoons on each side of the potatoes and with a sharp knife make some incisions about 4 mm distant to each other
Chop the herbs finely and put them in between the potato slits, sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Put them in the oven at 200C and cook for about 40-45 minutes until the potatoes are soft.
Take them out of the oven sprinkle with Parmesan and breadcrumbs and finish off with some flakes of butter. Put the potatoes back in the oven and let them crisp up for 2 to 5 minutes.
