Hasselback Potatoes

Here comes the most sinfully gorgeous looking potatoes recipe.
I saw it the first time at Purplefoodie blog and since I didn't have the pesto ingredients at home, I searched for more recipes and finally came with this recipe.

Large potatoes - 2
Parsley -1 tbsp
Oregano-1 tbsp
Basil-1 tbsp
Garlic - 3-4 cloves thinly sliced
Butter - 2 tbsp,cut in small cubes
Lemon - 1
Olive Oil- 1tbsp

  1. Preheat Oven to 225C.
  2. Clean the potatoes. Do not remove the skin.
  3. Parboil the potatoes for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Keeping the base intact,thinly slice the potatoes at regular intervals. Cut it in a see-saw manner.This would ensure that you are not cutting the base.
  5. Put the potatoes on a baking dish. 
  6. Push half of sliced garlic in the potato layers
  7. Push small cubes of butter in each layer.
  8. Melt some butter in a pan, Add remaining garlic pieces and all the herbs and stir well. 
  9. Add lemon juice and lemon zest to the butter mixture
  10. Pour this herbed butter on the potatoes making sure it goes inside the layers.
  11. Sprinkle salt and olive oil.
  12. Bake for 1 hour,10 minutes.
  13. When it is done,pour the melted butter/oil  which is in the baking dish again over the potatoes and grill it for 3 minutes to make it crispy.
  14. Serve It Hot!!
