Prepared these to have with baked chicken breasts. Baked for 1 hr and were done perfectly. Loved that they took little time to prepare and were so extra tasty!

I scaled back for 1 serve and as my potato was on the big side I allowed an extra 10 minutes in the oven (175C fan forced) and I cannot give enough praise for this delicious side dish nice and crunchy crisp exterior and pillow soft on the inside. I did leave the skin on as I quite enjoy it and a tip that may help others when making hasselbacks is when you go to slice you potato put the handle of a wooden spoon either side of the length of the potato and this will help to prevent you cutting all the way through. Thank you Kittencal.

I can't say enough about how wonderful tasting these potatoes are! The cooking time took longer than stated, but I am sure it was just the size of my potatoes and the amount I made. I made 12 total! They were sure worth waiting the extra minutes to finish! Thanks Carol! Another winner!
