Find out how to cut Hasselback potatoes - it's actually really easy. There are numerous ways out there how to cut them without cutting all the way through the potatoes.

Jamie Oliver for example, says to lay the potato on two wooden spoons, but the trouble is the potato is then hard to keep still. I find this way to be far easier.

Ingredients in this recipe

  • 2 potatoes - Maris Piper or King Edward
  • vegetable oil
  • fresh thyme - leaves only
  • garlic
  • Parmesan
  • Sea salt flakes

Recommended Equipment

Hasselback Potatoes

Mix the oil with the thyme and set it aside.

Oil and freshly picked thyme in a bowl.

Use a metal skewer and insert it horizontally all the way through the potato. Keep the skewer as near to the bottom of the potato as you can.

Place on a chopping board, skewer-side down, and slice through the potato (be careful not to cut all the way through on both ends).

Using a sharp knife will help to make slices 5 mm. Remove the skewer and repeat with the remaining potatoes. Or, you could buy this amazing (well it looks amazing) Hasselback potato cutter.

How to cut hasselback potatoes. It's actually easy, just insert a metal skewer as near to the bottom as you can, horizontally through the potato. Then using a sharp knife, slice the potato 5mm apart. The skewer will not allow the knife to go all the way through.

Put the potatoes cut-side up on a shallow baking dish and brush over the oil, getting some in between the slices.

Add the bashed garlic to the dish and season well with salt and black pepper.

Roast for 50 mins -1 hr until the potatoes are tender throughout and the tops are golden and crisp. Baste with any oil in the pan halfway through cooking.
