ISO Potato Technique

A while back, someone posted a recipe, rather, a technique for roasting potatoes. I think the op called them 'camelback potatoe'. I've done a search on DC, and all over google and have not been able to find them.

I've made these and they are great. I'm just trying to get the proper name for this unique potato presentation.

To make this dish, you peel a russet, or yukon gold spud, leavin one side flat so that the potato will sit still on that side. You then make very thin slices sideways to the length, from the top, and almost through the potato. Finally, brush with butter, or a compound butter and sprinkle with paprika, or other colorful herb and bake until tender. The potato gently fans out to make a very attractive, and delicious presentation.

What is this dish called. I need to know.

Oops. We posted at the same time.

Here's an easy variation of the dish that can be made on the BBQ or in the oven.

I have never cut a slice off the bottom. I use a wood spoon to hold the potato while I cut it vertically. The wooden spoon not only keeps the potato from rolling around, it helps to keep from cutting all the way through the potato.

I would need to see this technique to understand how you are doing it.
