You Will Need
6 medium, potatoes, washed, scrubbed and cleaned
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons, olive oil
30 grams, butter
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 220C/425˚F; put the potatoes on a chopping board, It helps to first cut a thin slice off the base of the potato so that they sit evenly and then place two knives or forks on either side of the potato this helps by stopping you from cutting all the way through the potato.
Starting from one end of the potato cut almost all the way through, at about 3 to 4mm intervals.
Arrange the potatoes in a baking tray and insert the garlic in between the slits, put some butter on top of each potato and then drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle some sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper over them.
Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy and the flesh are soft.
Serve and Enjoy!
