COOK'S NOTES
Hasselback potatoes originated in Sweden and are a tasty alternative to baked potatoes. The size of the potato affects the cooking time so test that they are cooked through before eating.

We use two different toppings but in fact they taste good if you just drizzle olive oil over the top of the potato. There is not set topping for Hasselback potatoes, parmesan or gruyere cheese also taste good.

PREPARATION

Pre-heat the oven to 170C / 325F / Gas mark 3
 
Slicing a potato The only slightly complication with Hasselback potatoes is cutting the potatoes. It probably helps to first cut a thin slice off the base of the potato so that they sit evenly. Then slice (1cm / third inch) along the potato as shown in the picture. Only slice two thirds of the way down the potato so that they hold together. Tow knives down each side of the potato should stop you slicing all the way through.

Garlic seasoning for hasselback Potatoes For the garlic topping, chop the rosemary sprigs and garlic finely. Grate off the rind of the lemon. Mix all the ingredients (including the olive oil) in a bowl.

Pour the mixture over two of the sliced potatoes doing your best to get it between the potato slices, especially the garlic.


Herby seasoning

For the herb seasoning, melt the butter in a pan, add the herbs and stir well.

Pour the mixture over the top of the remaining two potatoes making sure some of the mixture goes between the slices.


 
Hasselback potatoes ready to eat Put the potatoes on a baking tray and place in the middle of the oven for around 1 hour 10 minutes. The precise cooking time will depend on the size and type of potatoes. Test to ensure they are cooked through.

Place them under a hot gill for 3 minutes to crisp up the top. Serve with almost any other dish, try our sausage stew.
