Scored or Hasselback Potatoes with Sea Salt and Thyme

I spied this fancy way of doing potatoes on the TV a while ago and only got round to making them the other day. Crispy, crunchy and so easy to make they are also known as Hasselback Potatoes they are a great alternative to fries or a regular baked or jacket potato.  


They look more fancy too but if you like the look of these then you may well like my Crispy Roasted Potatoes with Lemon and Thyme.

Hasselback or Scored Potatoes

Best to use a Maris Piper or King Edward potato for these but any other variety of floury potato will work.
prep time: cook time: total time:

ingredients:


  • As many medium sized potatoes as you want to make.

instructions


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/400F or Gas 6 
    Then, using a sharp knife, carefully make thin slashes width ways almost all the way through each potato, taking care not to cut all the way through! 

    Put them in a shallow roasting tin and drizzle with a good amount of olive oil.

    Sprinkle with sea salt and roast for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until they have opened slightly and are cooked through. 

    Scatter over some freshly picked thyme leaves and allow to rest for a few minutes.

  1. You can also put your potatoes in a dessert spoon and then cut until your knife hits the edge of the spoon, that way you will never cut through the potato by mistake!! I love the thyme and sea salt that you have added!!

    Nice to do this with new pots too - quicker as well. Also can sprinkle with curry powder.
