Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
"A different take on the traditional baked potatoe. I only made two potatoes so I used 2 tbsp of butter instead of what was called for. They seemed a little dry about half way through, so i drizzled 1tbsp extra butter at that time. Worked like a charm!"- Mrsswill

Preheat the oven to 220?C (425F). Put the potato on a chopping board, flat side down. Start from one end of the potato, cut almost all the way through, at about 3 to 4 mm intervals.
Arrange the potatoes in a baking tray and insert the garlic in between the slits. Scatter some butter on top of each potato. Then drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy and the flesh is soft.

lesliepressley 3 weeks agoI haven't tried yet. Question, do you use baking potatoes?

pjogie1970 2 months agoIt was a good recipe but after reading the review I decided to alternate garlic and onion slices between the layers. The onion gave it a good flavor and kept a little more moisture in the potato. Topped with a little sour cream it was a hit.
latecook 3 months agoI have made these a bunch of times and they always turn out great. We do like them with more seasoning though. I melt together butter, olive oil, minced garlic, fresh thyme, chives, salt & pepper then brush over the potatoes before baking...so good. I never have a problem with the time or temp, 40 mins at 425 seems to be right on, crispy edges & fluffy insides. I wonder if maybe some are using potatoes too big, slicing too shallow or slicing too wide? Could it be that some are baking at 220F not realizing the recipe says 220C (425F)?

dmanderson1 6 months agoIwould make these again if I added more flavor....maybe some bacon and or cheese as someone else did. Pretty bland as the recipe calls. I had to double my cooking time so you make want to work that in as well.

jlburgart 8 months agoThese were easy to make but need a much longer cooking time. They did get nice and crisp but lacked flavor. May try again with some additional seasonings.
