When I’m cooking for the family or for friends, I like being creative. I worry about how the plate is going to look like and which side dish can go well with what. I had made some Roasted Chicken in the oven, so to go with it, I make Chorizo & Melted Cheese Hasselback Potatoes, and it was delicious! It’s a side dish to repeat.
A few days ago, I when shopping looking for ceramic measuring cups to incorporate them in my photos and I came across a Hasselback potato slicer. I was so excited that I had to buy it. I have tried it out and it’s very helpful and easy to use. I would recommend having this slicer. But until then it’s not a big deal, I’ve been serving Hasselback potatoes as a side dish for a while without the fancy slicer.
Before, I would get a pair of chopsticks and 2 rubber bands. I place the potato in between the chopsticks and place each rubber band on each side. When slice into the potato, until I reached the chopsticks.
The reason why I enjoy presenting my Roasted Hasselback Potatoes as a side dish is because there is so much flavor that goes into these potatoes. It’s so good, crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. It doesn’t take much to prepare them, just combine olive oil with some salt and ground pepper, dry thyme and basil, a teaspoon of soy sauce and then just brush the potatoes making sure that the olive oil gets into the slices. Yum!
