Swedish Style Baked Potatoes

Swedish Style Baked Potatoes

Since we are, it seems permanently, on a tight grocery budget we've been cooking lots of potatoes. I have been experimenting with making Swedish Style Baked Potatoes. They are so easy, and so good. They can be served as the main dish or as a side. I've also been experimenting with sweet potatoes cooking in this fashion and I'll share that recipe as soon as I've perfected it.

Swedish Potatos Recipe

Ingredients:
large russet potatoes
garlic, minced
chilled butter, cut into thin slices
olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Wash the potatoes thoroughly. Slice a small piece off the bottom or each of the potatoes. This will keep it from rolling around when you cut the slits into it. Using a sharp knife carefully slice the potato almost all the way through. Insert your butter slices and a bit of minced garlic into the slits. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake at 425 for about 40 minutes or until you can easily pierce the center of the potato with your knife. Serve immediately.

These potatoes are great on their own, topped like a typical baked potato, or served with soup or chili on the side.

The one on the left (you cant' even see the potato!) is served with strained Vegetarian 13 Bean Soup. The dish on the right is smaller potatoes (which didn't come out quite as good as the larger ones) served with the same soup.
