Aren’t they just beautiful! I love how these roasted rosemary potatoes fan open as they cook. This allows the buttery juices to get inside the potatoes and creates super crispy edges. Hence the name hedgehog roasted rosemary potatoes, because well, they have a hedgehog affect. Sort of??? Maybe??

These hedgehog potatoes are a take on a hassle back potato. Something I have been eating since my childhood!

Table view, hedgehog potatoes in a earthen bowl on a distressed wooden table.

To create the hedgehog effect you place the potato on a chopping board and place a wooden spoon either side of it. Then as you slice the spoon handles stop you cutting all the way through. Rotate the potato by 90º and cut again to create the fabulous hedgehog effect.

Then the potatoes are coated in a mixture of butter and oil, spiked with rosemary and garlic powder. In the recipe I use dried rosemary and garlic powder. I have tried fresh and they burn before the pottatoes are cooked, which makes everything taste slightly bitter. Using dried herbs, you get the flavour in the butter and oil but they don’t burn. Then just finish the dish with a little fresh rosemary.

    Hi Claire, I love potatoes when they are crispy and creamy! Perfect with a roast, steak or chicken. I’m all for anything that can be put on a sheet pan and roasted.

    Hi Claire! I know I’ve been “absent” lately, sorry. These potatoes look wonderful! I am working on my Thanksgiving menu and these could very well be included! I use a lot of rosemary with vegs and meats, both dried and fresh. I swear if there was a rosemary perfumr I would wear it!

      I think there would work so very well for Thanksgiving. Cx
