Is it wrong that I’ve been eating these potatoes as a main?

I know, they’re officially classified as the best ever side dish to complement any meal but I prefer it much more as a main dish.

You know, carb-loading on every count for my wedding next year.

I mean, these babies are so perfectly crispy on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth tender on the inside. Plus, the garlic and fresh herbs also gives it just enough flavor without overpowering your main entree.

But then again, if you’re like me, you won’t need a main dish.

    Made these to go on a “Baller Board” for a friends birthday celebration. They were so easy, looked impressive and were delicious! Birthday girl asked for the recipe. So it’s going in my arsenal of tried and true recipes.

    Outstanding!

    I think confusion of step 6 is that you don’t specify what the olive oil mixture is. I know, seems like it should be obvious, however, new cooks and/or folks who may be a little tentative with new recipes, are following instructions to the letter.

  3. That spoon idea was genius! Made for perfect cuts. Cooking them tomorrow for Easter lunch!

  4. Sorry I found these far toooo oily. I usually use melted butter instead of oil and find this muuuuch nicer
    I also use the wooden spoon method for cutting and find this ideal

    These are so simple, easy and delicious.  I served with sour cream (I added salt, pepper and some olive oil to it.)

    Thank you for the recipe!  

  6. Hey there.

    If I’m making the roasted leg of lamb recipe and these together.. How should I do it?

    Like how much time should I give the potatoes and how hot of an oven should I use for the lamb and potatoes?

    Thank you

  7. Recipe is incomplete. After herbs and oil are in bowl, then what? Inverted blender????

  8. I am looking forward to making these on Sunday this weekend. But in step 5 of your directions you don’t say what to do with the fresh herbs and olive oil. I presume I am supposed to sprinkle them over the potatoes. But you need to actually SAY that in the directions!

    Made these for a dinner party. Prepped them earlier in the day and made the finishing herb oil. When my guests came I popped them in the oven while we had wine and appetizers.  They came out gorgeous. Everyone raved about how cute they were and how delicious. Really wasn’t hard to prep with just a knife and cutting board.

    Delicious! Never would have thought of using basil. I also like to add a small dollop of sour cream on each. A couple of ideas to make slicing them easier: Place potato in the bowl of a wooden spoon before slicing – the edge of the spoon will keep you from cutting all the way through. Another option is to use wooden skewers or chopsticks, especially if you can find flat ones, placing the flat side down on cutting board. Same idea as the spoon – you won’t be able to cut all the way through the potato.

    Super easy to make. I impressed the in-laws last weekend with these. They looked just like the photos.

  12. Hasselback potatoes are the best, these look perfect!
