How to make Hasselback potatoes

How to make Hasselback potatoes

Hasselback potatoes - also known as 'Accordion Potatoes' - provide an beautiful alternative to baked potatoes.

You can do this with large potatoes, but I like to make them with new potatoes - they take less time to cook and they taste just as delicious!

You need:

  • 36 new potatoes
  • 30g butter
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh chopped rosemary
  • Fresh thyme leaves
  • sea salt
  • pepper


  1. Grab a sharp knife and cut across your new potatoes diagonally with a gap of about 3 millimeters. Make sure you don't cut all the way through so you've chopped the potato in two - this may take a bit of practice but trust me, it's worth it!
  2. Heat the butter and oil up in a frying pan and then add the potatoes with the cut side down) and after a few minutes turn them the other way up. Make sure they are covered in the oil and butter.
  3. Sprinkle each potato with salt pepper and your fresh herbs. Cook in the oven at 200°C/gas mark 6 for about 40 minutes.
  4. Serve with a yummy salad, or meat stew.

Whilst the Hasselback potatoes look like a lot of - well, hassle - trust me, it's worth the extra few minutes it takes to cut them.

I'd love to hear about it if you choose to make them!
