Hassleback Potatoes

We wanted to serve a different kind of potato with this years Christmas dinner, so we thought we'd give hasslebacks a try. We washed a couple of potatoes of a similar size and placed each onto a wooden spoon. We then carefully cut slits into the potatoes almost down to the bottom. (The wooden spoon stops you from going right through the potato. In a pan we melted a knob of butter.

We placed the potatoes in the pan slit side down to help soak up the butter. We basted them until well covered. We then seasoned with salt and pepper and baked in a hot oven (200°C) for 15-20 minutes until golden but soft inside.
