- 100g wild garlic
- 2 garlic cloves

How to:Hasselback potatoes
Turn the oven on 180 degrees c.
Melt the butter in a pan or in a microwave. Add the butter to a bowl with salt, pepper, dried basil and olive oil.
Peel the potatoes; then take two cooking spoons and put a potato in between (then it’s easier to cut and you won’t cut all the way through). Cut the potatoes with a 1,5-2 mm space between the cuts.
Place the potato on an oven tray with some parchment paper and brush ¼ of the butter-oil sauce on all of them.
Leave the potatoes in the oven for 1 hour. Every 15 m. brush some of the butter-oil sauce on the potatoes.
When the hour is up, take the potatoes out of the oven and leave them to cool for a few minutes.
When you’re ready to serve them, add some wild garlic pesto and fresh thyme.
Find all the ingredients and put them in a food processor, blend for 4-5 m. A tip is to add the ingredients little by little and remember to taste, so you get the consistency and taste that you prefer.
