Number of serving: 4
Oval-shaped medium size potatoes (scrub them clean since the skin will be kept on)

2-3 garlic cloves, chopped

Salt and pepper

Garnish, any one of the following items: dried basil, cooked bacon, rosemary, paprika, pesto sauce, herbed sour cream, cheeses, parsley, herbed bread crumbs, etc.


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees; prepare a baking sheet by placing aluminum foil over it.
  • Take one potato and, starting at one end, make slits/cuts cut in the potato almost all the way through.
  • If the potatoes tend to roll around, slice a thin layer off the base (prior to cutting the slits) to give the potatoes a flat bottom.
  • Repeat with remaining potatoes. Brush olive oil and butter over the potatoes.
  • Over each potato, sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the potatoes on the baking sheet and place in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy and the inside is soft.
  • Baste the potatoes with olive oil halfway through the bake time to make them extra crispy.
