Accordion Potatoes

IMG_0454

Also known as Hasselbeck potatoes, these are the cutest and most delicious way to bake a potato. The inside is like a baked potato – kind of flaky and soft. The edges get crispy and brown – like fries. The best of both worlds!. And my son loves to peel off each piece as he eats his potato. Fun with food!

1 potato per person
1 teaspoon oil per potato

Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non stick foil.

Place the potato on the cutting board and place a knife on either side.

Using a sharp knife, cut through the potato just until you hit the knife handle, so you don’t cut all the way through.

Brush each potato with a teaspoon of oil, trying to get the brush between the slices, if you can. It’s not necessary or easy so don’t worry if you don’t.

Bake until the edges are browning, 45 to 60 minutes depending on your oven.
