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.


[AD]  To sharpen my knife for this recipe I used the Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener that I was kindly gifted.  It works brilliantly – my knives have never been as sharp.

This is the first real knife sharpener for the home chef. Unlike a simpler sharpener, hand lapper or honing steel, it sharpens the entire bevel of the knife, not just the outer edge. With the Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener, you’ll never have to send your knives out for sharpening – you can easily get them to professional sharpness yourself in a matter of minutes. At home in your own kitchen.

0/4 Instructions
  • 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 brush each potato with butter, return to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes or until golden, crisp and tender. Enjoy!
