Hassleback Potatoes

These make a really tasty alternative to roast potatoes. Very simple to make (as is everything I choose to cook ha ha) and need little attention. The only slightly tricky part is slicing the tops, even now I still sometimes slice too far down & chop the potato in half! Make the cuts quite close together, but dont go more than half way through the potato.

I use baby potatoes for this, but not tiny ones as they would be too difficult to slice. Allow about 3 or 4 potatoes per person if they are small. Slice each potato halfway down, making the cuts quite close together. Toss in olive oil & sea salt & some pepper, then bung into a roasting tray. Roast at 200C for about 45 minutes to an hour, depeneding how you like them.


  1. I'm going to try these tomorrow, with slow cooked lamb.

  2. I keep meaning to try hasselback potatoes - never got round to it but they do look great.
