If you’ve never tried hasselback potatoes, they really are something extra special with their buttery flavour.
They’re a great alternative to a baked potato, or even on your Sunday roast dinner.
But these are super quick. Why? They’re using golden Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference British Gems baby new potatoes. which cuts the cooking time by more than half.
They’re also Sainsbury’s freshest new potato currently back in season with a quick harvest that are picked and delivered within 48 hours. How can you beat that?!
What I like to do is give them a good rinse.
And they also need very little prep.
Then, using two wooden spoons laid along side each other, I place a potato in between and slice in to 5mm intervals until my knife reaches the bottom.
It’s a simple and foolproof way to avoid cutting all the way though and essentially cutting it in half.
We don’t want that, do we?
So before you pop them in your preheated oven, now’s the time to think about seasoning with what you want!
Here I used syn free garlic frylight, fresh rosemary and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Then to finish off, I grated with low fat cheese. Irresistable and made in a jiffy for those that are busy!
These British Gems can be bought in 750g packs or loose in Sainsburys.
