Something wonderful about a garlicy, crispy baked potato fresh from the oven ! Hasselback Potatoes are just perfect and so very easy to make.
Baking Potatoes – Garlic cloves (1 per potato) – Butter – Sea Salt – Olive Oil – Parmesan Cheese ( Optional )
Clean the potatoes and slice a slither off the bottom so they sit flat onto the baking tray. Cut into the potato every 3 mm being careful not to cut all the way through the potato. Thinly slice the garlic cloves and add slices of garlic into each of the cuts. Spread a little butter over the top of the potato ensuring that some of the butter goes into the cuts with the garlic. Sprinkle with a generous amount of sea salt before drizzling a small amount of olive oil over the top of the potatoes. If you want a cheesy potato now is the time to sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Bake the potatoes in an oven for around 45 minutes – 1 hour depending on how crispy you like your potatoes. ( Oven temp 200 c / Gas 6 / 400 f )
