For the Weekend....One more potato recipe

One more potato recipe

Have you started working on your week-end menu? Be sure to add these potatoes. 
If you are like me, you could eat a potato every day. So, with the weekend on its way I thought you might like this potato recipe that can be made in the oven, on a grill, or in a campfire. 
I found this recipe on Kentucky Cooks blog. I will be visiting often based on the wealth of good cooking ideas she has. I have a very similar recipe which given to me by a cousin, who called her recipe Campfire Potatoes.  Hers were wrapped in aluminum foil and cooked on the grill. I think this potato is very adaptable to either an oven or an outdoor grill.
  • 4 Medium potatoes, cleaned – don’t peel                                           1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 4 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 Tbsp of olive or canola oil
  • pinch of smokey paprika
  • 1/2 tsp + or – seasalt
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
preheat oven to 425 degrees
Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8 inch intervals, cutting down to within 1/4 inch of the bottom.
Don’t slice all the way through the potato.
The potato will fan out a little during baking =o)
In a small bowl mix together:
oil, garlic, paprika, salt and cheese.
Lay the potatoes on an ungreased baking sheet.
Carefully spoon on seasoning mixture in between the slits of the potatoes. Rub the outside of the potatoes with any leftover mixture.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes.
The inside will be cooked through and the outside of the will be crispy.
Garnish ideas: 
  • parmesan cheese
  • your favorite shredded cheese
  • snips of chives
  • cooked, crumbled bacon
  • sour cream
  • butter

*I think a person could use fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. 
Bon Appetit!
