The kids have been keen to have me cook potatoes in a different ways and today they basically described Hasselback potatoes.
They like to “explore” new cooking techniques and I certainly encourage them to be imaginative. So today they described a couple of new ways; one was describing something like a Hasselback potatoes while my other daughter was describing a criss-cross pattern cut into the potatoes.
For the Hasselback potatoes we sliced part way through (I lay wooden spoons on each side so then knife didn’t go right through the potato).
Once the potato was sliced we jammed small pieces of cheddar cheese between as many of the slices as possible.
We baked the potatoes in the oven at 425 degrees for about an hour. When we pulled them out they were still quite firm to the bite but the cheese had melted into the spaces between the slices and … delicious!!
