Accordion potatoes §


We were sucked in by Tiktok's latest food trend and challenged ourselves to make accordion potatoes so we could be as cool as those fellow kids. We kind of winged (wung?) this one but basically used Dano's Seasoning's as a source


Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Makes: ~12 accordians


Ingredients:

4 potatoes

Butter Herbs and spices of choice (e.g. garlic powder, paprika, oregano, pepper)


1. Totally a-peeling


Peel those tatties (no that is not a chat up line) and cut them into slices a couple of centimetres thick

Place each slice in between to wooden skewers and cut in a straight line, then flip the slice over and cut on the diagonal. Each slice should then look like a little concertina, pretend to play it while wistfully looking out a window like Steve Martin in "Only Murders in the Building"



In a separate bowl, melt some butter and mix in your desired herbs and spices. This can be anything from oregano, paprika, sumac, rosemary etc. add in a pinch of salt and pepper to! Have a play and see what feels right.Brush the butter mixture over the slices, turn and baste the other side too




Bake for 20 minutes at 200°C Dink and sink!



Food for Thought

Lizzy says: "I have always wanted to make hasselback potatoes, and this was the perfect build up to making them. The only issues I had with this recipe is that it was from Tik Tok... so I watched the video once and thought I knew what was going on... but I immediately forgot to cut my potatoes smaller, so they were too big and were raw in the middle when we dunk and sunk! I would probably try these again, because even though they were raw I still went back for more. 6/10 "




Kate says: "I have avoided Tiktok like the plague but youtube shorts have finally trapped me with their short-form content (which is mostly taken from Tiktok anyway)... And these guys kept coming up repeatedly. Like a lot of Tiktok food trends I think it looks a lot better on a screen than in reality, and other than the accordion shape I didn't think these were that different to regular chips you can make by cutting a potato normally. I know there are fancier versions where you soak the potatoes, roast some garlic to go in the butter etc. which maybe taste mind-blowingly spectacular but I think this is just a lesson for all of us to avoid trending foods and seek out something which is actually simpler and as ,or if not more, delicious. 5/10"
