• 6 Medium Size Potatoes
  • 2 - 3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 30 g Butter
  • Sea Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to 220?C (425?F). 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.

You can use 4 large potatoes, it is good to cook them a little slower (i.e. wrap in foil and cook for 20 minutes at the start) otherwise you’ll end up with very crispy outsides but they might still be firm in the middle.
