Accordion potatoes

20 minutes to prepare to cookServes 4

Twist on potatoes


I love potatoes in any shape, form, or fashion, but having them stretched out, revealing a seemingly intricate pattern, makes them even more enjoyable!

Accordion potatoes are perfect if you want to elevate your normal potato side dish! With such an eye-catching shape, they are perfect for an impressive dish to wow your guest! And get this, they are very easy to make!
It took me a couple of tries to get into the groove of slicing the potatoes without destrying them, but once I did, I was able to make the perfect accordion shape each time! So here is the recipe walk-through so you can make them perfectly! I promise you, it’s much easier to make than it looks!

Here are ingredients for a 4-serving recipe:

6 red potatoes
EVO oil
salt and pepper

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C
  2. Wash and peel potatoes, then place them in a cold bath of water and ice for 30 minutes
  3. Cut them into slices, approximately 5mm thin
  4. Cut parallel slits into each slice, stopping just before you cut through so that the slices stay connected at the bottom of the potato. Space the slices about 2 mm apart. (Tip: I rest each potato on 2 toothpicks and use that as a guide for when to stop slicing). Then, turn the slice and repeat on the other side
  5. Pour 3 tablespoons of EVO oil in a pan, add salt and pepper and stir to mix. Brush this mixture on all the potato slices
  6. If you want, you can place a toothpick inside each slice and use it to curl it
  7. Bake at 180° for 30 minutes. Let it cool down 5 minutes before serving
