Accordion Potatoes

Type: Vegetables
Courses: Side dish
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

6   Baking potatoes - (2 lbs total) - scrubbed
2 tablespoons 30mlOlive oil
1/2 tablespoon 7.5mlSea salt
1 teaspoon 5mlFresh rosemary
  Shredded Cheddar cheese - (optional)

Recipe Instructions

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Put a potato on a cutting board and lay a wooden spoon next to it. Cut 8 or 10 slices down through the potato until the knife reaches the spoon handle; this will leave the base of the potato intact. Repeat with all potatoes.

Place the potatoes in a roasting pan, drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with the salt. Place a sprig of rosemary between each slice. Bake until tender, 40 or 50 minutes.

For serving, remove the rosemary springs and replace with fresh ones, or sprinkle with shredded cheese.
