Garlicky Accordian Baked Potatoes

These are just a fun variety of a baked potato. I am always looking for ways to liven up the basic foods. My oldest and I thought they were great. My hubby and youngest just thought they were okay - good but nothing major. Our middle just doesn't eat potatoes - imagine that. Okay - she eats french fries! :)

P.S. My hubby is playing around with a new lens - we didn't love the picture but wanted to share it anyway!

Garlicky Accordian Baked Potatoes (Adapted from Dining by Fireflies, Charlotte Jr. League)

(I halved this recipe and only made 5 potatoes)

10 medium baked potatoes
1 cup butter, melted
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
6 oz freshly grated Parmesan cheese (I forgot this but think it would have been even better)

Preheat oven to 375. Thinly slice potato 3/4 way through crosswise, carefully leaving the bottom whole. Combine butter, olive oil and garlic in shallow bowl. Roll potatoes in butter mixture and place in large, shallow roasting dish. Pour remaining butter mixture over potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Bake, basting frequently, until tender and golden -about 1 1/2 hours. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese just before serving. (Can be made earlier in the day and reheated just before serving)

Mmmmmm, beautiful pic! I learned recently these are Hasselback potatos and cutting them as they lay crosswise on the bowl of a wooden spoon prevents cutting all the way through. Who knew?!

That is one pretty potato! And one delicious sounding recipe too.
Thanks for sharing!
