Potatoes seem to fall into the “same old, same old” way of doing things. Try this and see if it doesn’t wake up the taste buds just a little.
- 6 baking potatoes small enough to fit into a large serving spoon
- 3 tbsp. butter, melted (not margarine)
- grated clove of garlic
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp. panko crumbs
- 2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
Peel potatoes and place in cold water. Put potato in a spoon, slice 1/8″ apart, just to edge of spoon -do not cut completely through, return to water. Remove each potato and drain. Pat dry. Put cut side up in baking dish. Baste with the melted butterand garlic.
Cook 30 mins at 425 degrees, baste again. Cook another 15 minutes or until they are golden in colour. Add the cheese and panko crumbs during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
What can I say? YUMMY.
