Hasselback Potatoes


Crispy skin, soft and moist center… You can season it with your favourite seasonings too! Most hassleback potatoes are made with butter, and heavy cream. I try to make it a little healthier by using only heart healthy EVOO. It is really quite simple to make this dish, try it and I’m sure you will like it.
Ingredients (Makes 2 potatoes)
  • 2 med sized baking potatoes, washed and scrubbed clean (I used russet)
  • 2 tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red chilli flakes (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped scallion

Preheat oven to 200*C.
Mix the spices into the EVOO.

Slit potatoes 2/3 way down, 0.5mm apart.
I placed the handle side of a wooden spoon on the side of my potato to stop the knife from cutting all the way down.

Place potato on non-stick pan.
Drizzle oil with spices on the potato.
I used a teaspoon to make sure that my spices n oil drips into each slit.
Make sure you rub the skin of the potato with oil.
Bake for 40 mins on 200*C.

Tilt pan on the side, using a spoon scoop the extra oil on the pan and drizzle it over the potatoes.
Sprinkle with shredded cheddar.

 Bake for about 10-15 mins until cheese starts to brown.

Garnish with chopped scallions and serve warm.

Bon appetit!!
