Did you notice those nice looking hasselback potatoes next to the chicken on my last recipe (Chicken Fricasse)? Well, I saw a chef doing them on a cooking show once and I had to give it a go. The first time I tried it, I found it quite tricky to cut the potatoes without breaking them. So I decided to do some online research and I finally learn how to make them with a very easy trick 🙂 I saw several recipe videos and most of them included some sort of stuffing i.e. bacon or cheese, which would be placed in between the cuts in the potatoes. I admit that it’s a nice idea but I though that it would be better to keep it simple as I wanted to serve them as a side to a dish that included a sauce. So I only added garlic and rosemary. It was really tasty.. such a different way to cook your usual potatoes. And it looks beautiful on the plate. If you wish to serve these potatoes with for example grilled meat or fish, I think it would be nice to add some cheese to it.
These potatoes come out of the oven crisp and full of flavour… just like you want your potatoes to be 🙂
