[VeganMoFo 2014 Recipe] Crispy Hedgehog Potatoes with Garlic and Herbs

There are few recipes that you know will be loved so much that you got to make them again and again! It's just that instinct I guess or the sheer simplicity. Today's dish Crispy Hedgehog Potatoes with Garlic and Herbs fits perfectly into such a category. Very similar to hassleback potatoes, this is one other fun way to roast potatoes. It hardly takes any effort for preparation and doesn't need much attention as most of the cooking is done in the oven. If you are short on time and need a quick appetizer for your next house or potluck party, look no further. Hedgehogging spuds is the way to go!

Crispy Hedgehog Potatoes with Garlic and Herbs

Recipe Source: BBC Good Food
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 45 to 50 mins
Serves 2


8 to 9 small potatoes
2 to 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
very finely chopped cilantro (or any other herb)
salt and pepper
olive oil


Thoroughly clean the potatoes to remove dirt and dry with paper towels. Set aside. Preheat oven to 200C or 400 F. Make 3-4 deep slashes length and width ways in each potato, to make a criss-cross pattern. Place on a baking sheet and insert chopped garlic and herbs in between the gashes of potato and coat with lots of olive oil. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes first. Increase the temperature to 220 C or 430 F. Continue roasting for 20 more minutes, until the potatoes are crispy and golden brown. Serve with any dip of your choice.
