You know the real meaning of true love? Someone who can appreciate your idiosyncracies Cooking with somebody who authors a food blog can be disappointing since you have to wait until the perfect picture gets taken, there’s always so many dang dishes to wash, etc. But I am blessed to have the best assistant anyone could ask for, and a stellar sous chef to boot!
This dish was something we saw on some food show and we decided to put our own twist on it. It’s not a difficult recipe but the results are sure to please. Here we go:
Medium red skinned potatoes
Garlic olive oil
salt, garlic & pepper
chopped fresh dill
Wash the potatoes and set on a paper towel to dry. Slather each potato with olive oil (garlic infused oil is preferred), garlic, salt and pepper then wrap each potato in aluminum foil. Bake potatoes at 375 until tender, approximately one hour.
Remove from oven and take them out of foil. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and smash each potato with a bowl or glass until they are about 1/2 inch thick. Brush tops of potatoes with garlic oil and generously season with salt and fresh cracked pepper. Bake at 425 for another 20 or 30 minutes until the potatoes start to brown. Sprinkle a generous amount of fresh chopped dill and bake for another ten minutes.
