  • 16 baby potatoes
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 20 g butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 10 g parmesan finely grated


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
  • Place two thin bamboo skewers on a cutting board with a baby potato between them. Cut slits into the potato 3mm apart. The skewers will prevent the potatoes from being cut all the way through (see photos above). Repeat with all the potatoes.
  • Place potatoes in cold water and leave them to soak for 10 minutes to release starch. Then dab them with a paper towel to dry. Place the potatoes in the prepared baking tray.
  • Mix the melted butter and oil in a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, brush each potato with the mixture, getting inside all the slits. Reserve any leftover mixture. Sprinkle with salt.
  • Place the potatoes in the oven for 20 minutes. Then take them out and brush again with the remaining butter/oil mixture. Bake potatoes another 20 minutes.
  • Remove potatoes from the oven and brush again. sprinkle with parmesal and return to the oven for the final 5-10 minutes, until potatoes are crispy and the flesh is tender. Remove from oven and serve immediately!
