Ingredients to make Hasselback Potatoes!

  • 2 Big Baking potatoes
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Crushed black pepper
  • salt as needed
  • Dried herbs / Fresh Herbs
  • 4 - 5 garlic Cloves
  • 2 green chillis
  • 1 tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional)

How to make Hasselback Potatoes!

  1. Choose two big baking potatoes. Scrub and wash them well and pat dry with kitchen towel. Cut a thin slice at the bottom so that the potato sits well on the tray and it is a bit easier to slice them.
  2. Now with a sharp knife cut thin slices almost down the bottom but leaving half an inch intact. Once you cut and the slits are not visible, as they are baked they start to fan out.
  3. Brush generously with olive oil all around the potato and place them in a greased baking tray. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
  4. Finely chop the garlic and slit some chillis. Take the butter in a small pan and start melting.
  5. Add the garlic and chilli and lower the flame to minimum. leave it for 5 - 10 minutes on slow flame so that the garlic is not burnt but the flavors are infused in the butter. Lastly discard the chillis.
  6. You can also use garlic infused olive oil that is readily available in markets.
  7. First we are going to bake them for 25 minutes without the flavored butter. So pop them in the preheated oven and let them cook for 25 minutes at 180 - 200 deg C.
  8. After 25 minutes, take them out and you can see the slits slightly fanned out. If not nudge them with a butter knife and start brushing the flavored butter on the slits. you can see the butter seeping in the slits.
  9. Again bake it for another 25 minutes and by this time the potatoes are almost cooked. Again brush them with remaining butter (along with the garlic granules with needed) and sprinkle some dried herbs and bake for another 8 - 10 minutes
  10. My potatoes were quite big and it took a total of 62 minutes (25+25+12) to bake to perfection. In case of small potatoes, time would differ. So keep an eye always.

My Tip:

Feel free to sprinkle some Parmesan cheese at this time. Or just breadcrumbs will do. I neither added cheese nor breadcrumbs.You can also use fresh herbs like rosemary and insert them in the slits.
