How to make Mini parmesan and garlic Hasselback potatoes
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F or 205 degrees F.
Step 2: Line a large baking tray with baking paper for easy cleaning.
Step 3: Into about 2 to 3 mm, slice the potatoes, making sure not to cut all the way through. Then, place the potato slices on a baking tray.
Step 4: Place the butter in a small dish and microwave for about 30 seconds. Alternately, you can melt the butter in a small saucepan. Then, stir in the olive oil and garlic.
Step 5: Using a pastry or basting brush baste the potatoes in the butter/olive oil/garlic mixture. And sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 25 minutes.
Step 7: Remove from the oven and baste the potatoes again with the rest of the olive oil/butter/garlic mixture and the juices from the pan. Sprinkle parmesan on top, gently poking some down into the gaps.
Step 8: Bake for 35 to 30 minutes more or until the potatoes are golden and crispy.
Step 9: If desired, garnish with extra parmesan and fresh herbs.
To slice the potatoes, make sure to tightly hold the one end and slice evenly as possible to 3 to 4 mm intervals.
For this recipe, you can use varieties of small potatoes.
Or use bigger potatoes but you need to adjust the baking time to about an hour and ten minutes.
