Super easy recipe: Hasselback potatoes

Ok, we forgot to add the onions…

Jacket potatoes are yummy. We recently heard about this new way of eating potatoes, and we quickly found an easy recipe that works for us.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons of olive oil
A pinch of table salt and pepper
2 potatoes (big ones)
80g butter
150g of hard cheese of your choice (Cheddar or Gouda or similar)
1 can of baked beans
1 large onion

– Preheat the oven at 180 C.
– After washing the potatoes carefully, dry them and rub them in oil, salt and pepper.
– Cut the potatoes almost to the bottom, but not completely, in slices roughly 1cm apart.
– Cut the cheese and the butter in thin slices.
– Insert each slice inside the potatoes, alternating butter and cheese.
– Place them on a tray covered in baking paper or aluminium foil.
– Cook them in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
– In the meantime, chop the onion and fry it in a pan with a bit of oil.
– Warm up the baked beans in a pot.
– Once the potatoes are ready, eat them immediately with a side of onions and beans.

These potatoes are super easy to make and taste great!

Adding the butter…

  1. Actually, Hasselbackspotatis is originally made with breadcrumbs or sliced almonds. But the version with cheese looks good. :)

    • Really?! Thank you for telling me this, I had no idea, as the person who told me about it made it with cheese too! I will have to look for the original recipe then!! :) :) (if you have one please share!)

  2. Those look great. I love potatoes any way, shape, or form.
