Mini Hasselback Potatoes
These mini hasselback potatoes are gorgeously crispy, easy to make and bursting with flavour!
Cost: £1.50 / $2
- 2lb / 1kg Baby Potatoes
- 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted
- 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 heaped tsp EACH: Ground Sage, Onion Powder (see notes for subs)
- 3/4 tsp Salt, or to taste
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
Make very thin slices (1/16" - 1/8") along your baby potatoes, ensuring you don't go all the way down, just to keep them in tact. Place in a large bowl.
In a small pot combine melted butter with seasoning. Pour into the bowl with the potatoes and stir to combine. Make sure all the potatoes are completely coated.
Spread potatoes out on a baking tray. Add a drizzle of oil to the bowl (around 1 tbsp) and use your brush to combine any leftover seasoning. Brush onto the tops of your potatoes.
Bake in the oven at 200C/390F for 30-35mins, or until golden and crispy. Timings will depend on size of potatoes, so could take notably less or more time. If they start charring at all before softened through the centre just turn down the heat.
Serve as finger food with a dip or as a side to a main!
a) Seasoning - I love sage and onion with these, but other seasonings work great too. You could do 1 heaped tsp Paprika & Garlic Powder with 1/2 tsp Thyme and 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper (as I do with my oven Baked Potato Wedges). You could also do 1 tsp each Smoked Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder (as I do in my Spicy Potatoes). Finally you could do 1 tsp each Fresh Rosemary, Thyme and Garlic (as I do with my Roasted Baby Potatoes).
b) Can I make these with larger potatoes? - Yup! Just use the same weight (2lb/1kg) which will be 4-6 potatoes depending on size. Same method, same oven temp, just keep an eye on them as they roast (they will 45mins+ to fully roast).
c) Dip - Check out all my Delicious Dips if you want to serve them as an appetizer!
d) Calories - based on sharing between 4 with no dip.
