Give your favorite baked potato a whole new look with our recipe for Pesto Spiral Potatoes. Getting them to look this fancy is super simple, thanks to one easy trick! And once you've drizzled 'em with pesto sauce, they'll taste just as fancy as they look.

What You'll Need

  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce (see Note)
  • Parmesan cheese for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
     
  2. Put 2 wooden spoons parallel to one another and place a potato lengthwise between the handles. Make 8 crosswise cuts three-fourths of the way through the potato, stopping each time the knife hits the spoon handles. Repeat with remaining potatoes; set aside.
     
  3. In a small bowl, combine the oil, salt, and pepper; rub mixture evenly over potatoes. Place potatoes on a baking sheet.
     
  4. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until tender. Remove from oven, drizzle with pesto sauce, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Notes

Sure, it's fine to use store-bought pesto sauce, but if you want to make your own, try our recipe for Fresh Pesto Sauce -- it's easy and delicious!

Well, tried this recipe because it seemed like a good way to cut the potatoes into fans. Other than a good way to slice the vegetable, simply boring.

Sounds good and will have to try it.

This is an upgrade on the potato! With the spiral presentation and the homemade pesto sauce, http//www.mrfood.com/Pasta-Sauce/Fresh-Pesto-Sauce == , this was a great side for the london broil here 10. http//www.mrfood.com/Beef/Steakhouse-London-Br == oilarticleCommentRatingDiv. Sometimes I just have to have steak and potatoes!
