Need a way to level up your potato game without much more effort? Allow me to present these easy fenugreek hassleback potatoes.
Potatoes are amazing no matter how you cook them. They’re so savory, hearty, and satisfying. You can dress them up or down, so its no shock that we all tend to serve them regardless of the occasion. Granted most people don’t do hassleback potatoes for a Sunday fry up. But when you’re looking for fanciful potatoes, I can’t suggest these easy fenugreek hassleback potatoes enough.
I love how beautiful these hassleback potatoes look on a tray. The accordion-like slits are perfect for topping with fenugreek, garlic and cumin, scallion butter, cheese, bacon, herbs..basically, anything you want to make its way down into the crevices. It’s a bit annoying to cut the slices into the potato, so keep the faith and don’t get too bent out of shape if it’s not perfect. They’ll taste fabulous no matter what. I have used the two spoon method and it works quite well, but I just tend to free hand it. Being a surgeon was bound to pay off eventually, is the way I see it.
The fenugreek combined to the potato really brings out an earthy and savory flavor, nearly making it taste meaty. The potato pairs well with meat, other veggies, or as I did for this particular photo shoot, a mid morning snack by itself. If you’re looking to further hassleback your life, I suggest trying the cumin hassleback potato, as well.
To reheat the potato, should you need to, just pop it back into the oven until it’s hot through. If it looks overly dried out you can brush it will olive oil or butter. Or the lazy way (my way) spray it with a bit of Pam cooking spray.
