Easy Hasselback Potatoes
Try my easy Hasselback potatoes recipe for a fun way to serve up baked potatoes that your kids are sure to love. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
- 8 medium potatoes
- handful flatleaf parsley finely chopped, to serve
- butter or olive oil to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
Wash the potatoes. Place on a chopping board and very carefully slice thin slices (about 5mm thick or even thinner if you can) taking care not to go all the way through to the chopping board. Placing two wooden spoon handles or two chop sticks on either side of the potato will help here.
Put the prepared potatoes on a non-stick or lightly greased baking tray. If you wish you can brush with olive oil to get a crispier skin but this isn't essential.
Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with olive oil or butter and some finely chopped parsley.
