3tbsp.green onion(sliced thin)
¼tsp.ground black pepper
Gather and measure all the ingredients.
Peel the potatoes and slice them lengthwise to a thickness of ½ inch. (No thicker!)
Take a potato slice and place it horizontally on a cutting board. Place a skewer stick on top and bottom of the potato and start cutting vertical cutting close to each other, making sure you use the wooden skewer sticks as a stopper. ( do not cut all the way through) repeat the same process on the other side and make diagonal cuts instead. The idea is to have one long side that is not cut along the edge. This holds the potatoes together.
Now, take your wooden skewer sticks and carefully insert them from bottom to top.
Place the potatoes into cold water for at least 30 minutes. This process will remove the starch excess making the potatoes crunchier once you cook them.
Preheat the oven to 355°F. Dry the potatoes with a paper towel and place them on a parchment-lined baking pan or cookie sheet. Brush some oil over the potatoes on both sides with a basting brush and then sprinkle on the paprika.
Sprinkle some salt & black pepper and place them in the oven for about 30 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Once they are ready, top up with some freshly chopped spring onion and any sauce of your preference.
Air Fryer Instructions
Follow the same direction as above. When ready to cook your accordion potatoes place them in the air fryer at 375°F for 15-17 minutes, making sure to flip them at least once during the cooking process.
