Ingredients (serves 4)
4 medium potatoes, scrubbed (leave skin on)
4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
3 tbsp of olive oil
pinch of smoked paprika
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
chopped chives for garnish
Preheat the oven to 425˚F (220ºC).
Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8-inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom.
Be careful not to slice all the way through. The potato will fan out a bit as it bakes.
Combine olive oil, garlic, salt, smoked paprika and parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Carefully insert pinches of this mixture in between the slits of the potatoes. Rub the outsides of the potatoes with residual oil.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes. The inside should be cooked through and the outside of the potato should be a bit crispy.
Garnish with additional parmesan and chives!
