Not only do these potatoes look great they taste amazing! These potatoes have crispy edges with middles as creamy as mashed potatoes. A perfect side dish for any meal.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/ gas mark 6.
- Cut slits in the potatoes, leaving the bottom intact. I did this by putting the potato between 2 chopping boards or 2 chopsticks. Use that as a guide for when to stop slicing — slice straight down and when your knife hits the edge of the chopping board/chopsticks, stop slicing.
- Brush the potatoes with oil and place on a baking tray. Now in a small bowl mix together the herbs, salt and pepper. Sprinkle over each potato. Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.
- Remove the potatoes from the oven and dot each potato with butter, return to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes or until golden, crisp and tender. Enjoy!
