Dramatic-looking food always has the potential to convert picky eaters to food lovers. Likewise, regular baked potatoes can be turned into Hasselback potatoes to pull everyone to the dining table.
Coming to this Hasselback potato recipe, following some simple steps could result in the best crispy outside and juicy inside potatoes.
Slicing is the most crucial step; if you succeed, you have crossed half of the wall. Get ready with your sharper knife.
Slice them evenly, and keep pencils, knives, chopsticks, or skewers on both sides of the potatoes. This step avoids separating the slices apart.
Potatoes tend to change their color after cutting them. So, after slicing, immerse them in ice-cold water with lemon juice; this also avoids discoloration and removes excess starch.
Baking them covering for the first 20 minutes could produce juicer, fully cooked potatoes. Bake them again uncovered, resulting in a crispier outside. Every oven is unique, so adjust the baking time accordingly.
