Hasselback Potatoes

Serves: 4

3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese – finely grated
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt


  1. Set the oven to 450 F (220 C).

  3. Oil the foil.
  4. Set the flat side of a potato half on a chopping board.
  5. Arrange 2 chopsticks, one on each side of the potato.
  6. Thinly slice across the potato. (Chopsticks will stop the knife from cutting right through the potato.)

  9. Drizzle the oil over the potatoes.
  10. Combine the topping ingredients.
  11. One at a time, bend the potatoes to separate the slices and dip into the crumb topping.

  13. Sprinkle any remaining topping over the potatoes.
  14. Cover the baking pan with foil.
  15. Bake for 30 minutes.
