These make a nice change from traditional roast or baked potatoes.


  1. Preheat the oven to approx 210C.
  2. Cut across the potatoes at around 1/8 inch intervals, slicing about 3/4's through the thickness of the potatoes.
  3. Put a baking tray on the hob and heat up the butter and olive oil until sizzling.
  4. Turn the potatoes in the fat well; arrange cut side up and again spoon over the fat.
  5. Sprinkle well with the sea salt and put in the oven for approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes until the flesh is soft.

I make these potatoes often, they are really excellent. For a "switch-up" try sprinkling with steak spice instead of sea salt. This recipe also works well in a foil pouch on the bar b q, just remember to turn them often so they don't burn.
