Tesco Cypriot New Potatoes are very versatile, as they are ideal for boiling, steaming, roasting and even baking. They don’t need to be peeled, making them quick and easy to prepare – just a quick wash in cold water is all that is needed. The distinctive rich, creamy yet earthy taste of their yellow flesh is thanks to the mineral-rich, red alluvial soil in which the potatoes are grown and harvested, using traditional methods on small family farms on the sun-soaked island of Cyprus.

Mini Hasselback Potatoes with Garlic & Cheese
750g bag Tesco Cypriot New Potatoes
2 Tbsp oil
salt & black pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh or dried rosemary
30g Gruyère cheese
Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas mark 6/390°F). Lightly brush a baking tray with a little olive oil.
Wash the potatoes under cold running water, drain and gently pat dry with a clean tea towel.
Carefully cut thin slices 3/4 of the way into each potato, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Place the potatoes on the oiled baking tray and brush all over with some of the oil.
Season well with salt and pepper before popping in the pre-heated oven to bake for 20 minutes.
As soon as you’ve put the potatoes in the oven, finely chop the garlic and add to the remaining oil, along with the chopped rosemary. Stir to combine then leave to infuse as the potatoes cook.
Finely grate the Gruyère cheese.
After 20 minutes in the oven, remove the potatoes and brush all over with the garlic infused oil.
Using a small spoon, carefully separate some of the potato slices and push the remaining garlic and rosemary between them.
Top each potato with some of the grated cheese until you’ve used it all up.
Return the potatoes to the oven and bake for a further 15-20 minutes until cooked through and golden.
We enjoyed ours with grilled chicken and steamed vegetables, it was a delicious healthy meal that went down well with the whole family!
