Cooking a baked potato to perfection is more difficult than it sounds! Check out this recipe from Olivado including our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Hasselback Potatoes


  • 8 medium general-purpose NZ potatoes (eg. Desiree, Rua, Moonlight)
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme or rosemary
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh thyme to garnish


1. Preheat oven to 220°C / 430°F, (200°C / 390°F fan-forced).

2. Prepare potatoes by carefully cutting 3-5mm thick slices along each potato. You can have a wooden spoon sitting alongside the potatoes to help stop you cutting the whole way through.

3. Place potatoes on a lined baking tray, or baking dish and tuck a slice of garlic and the herbs in between each potato slit – it doesn’t have to be perfect.

4. Drizzle with Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and season with salt and pepper.

4.Roast for 40 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan. Roast for a further 5-10 minutes or until golden brown (larger potatoes may need slightly longer).

Garnish with a few extra fresh herbs. Enjoy!
