How to Bake Potatoes in the Oven
Have you wanted to try your hand at Hasselback potatoes? The number of thin slices and perfect crispiness can be rather intimidating, but we have a quick tutorial for you to put your mind at ease. Hasselbacks are delicious and a fast, creative way to serve potatoes, especially for a dinner party or holiday meal.
- 3 to 4 potatoes
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- Fresh thyme, oregano and rosemary
- Freshly ground sea salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Wash and rinse potatoes (don’t peel them).
Place a potato on a spoon.
Make very close cuts on the potato until you reach the spoon, so the potato slices will hold together by the bottom. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
Roughly chop the herbs. Mix the olive oil and fresh herbs together.
Place the potatoes on a baking tray. Use a basting brush to spread the olive oil and herbs over the potato. Try to get into the slices as well with the oil.
Sprinkle them with freshly ground salt and pepper.
Bake the potatoes until they are golden brown with crisp edges, about 60 minutes. This completely depends on the size of the potatoes. Keep an eye on them! If they are looking dry while baking, baste them with a little more olive oil.
