Since we’ve been grilling and eating a lot of steak/meat I have been in the mood for potatoes but wanted to try something different. I tried these before we left on vacation and just forgot to post the recipe. It’s a fun new and yummy way to eat potatoes. Definitely recommend it. I can’t remember where I got the recipe (sorry to the owner).
Now go and get grilling before summer ends! (Although if you think like me, an indoor grill pan makes grilling available all year round!)
5-6 medium baking potatoes
4 garlic cloves, pressed through a garlic pressed or finely minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425. Put the potato on a cutting board, flat side down. Start from one end of the potato, cut almost all the way through, making thin slices.
Arrange the potatoes on a baking sheet and sprinkle the garlic in between the slits. Scatter some butter on top of each potato (it doesn’t have to be exact – I just pinched off pieces of butter and put them on top of the potato and in random slices). Then drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle some salt and freshly ground black pepper over the potoates.
Bake the potatoes for about one hour or until the potatoes turn crispy and the flesh is soft.
