I have seen so many posts on these hasselback potatoes and they looked so pretty that I had to try making it myself. Very simple and you can choose whatever topping you want with it.

This is what you’ll need

Baking potatoes or any other potatoes: 2

Melted butter: 2tbsp

Cheese slices: 2 (cut into one inch squares)

Chilli flakes: 2tsp

Salt and pepper to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. Wash the potatoes well and pat dry. Cut it into thin, even, horizontal slices, keeping the base intact. An easy way to do this is pierce a skewer through from one end of the potato to the other lengthwise and cut until the skewer.

2. Preheat the oven at 200 deg C.

3. Brush the top of the sliced potatoes with half of the melted butter. Sprinkle some salt and pepper powder. Bake for around 30 minutes.

4. Remove from the oven, add the cheese squares between alternate slits of the potatoes. Brush it with the rest of the butter. Sprinkle the chilli flakes and bake again for another 10 to fifteen minutes or until the top is nicely brown and potato cooked.

5. Remove from oven and serve hot with sour cream or a dip of your choice.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 1 hour

Serves: 2
