Music Selection: Captain & Tennille – Love Will Keep Us Together
“Let Love Keep Us Together” – potatoes, herbs, sour cream, cheddar cheese, chives and bacon bits… “I Been Thinking of you”…. such a great combination. These potatoes are a tasty great dish, and you can use your favorite herbs. We usually use rosemary, and sometimes dill or garlic. The whole potatoe tastes like the herb. Leftover potatoes can be fried for breakfast in butter, as a side dish. You won’t regret trying this recipe. Just say “I will, I will, I will…”
4 Tbsp olive oil
4 sprigs of rosemary or dill (fresh is best, but you can used dried)
4 cloves garlic, cut in slivers
Toppings: butter, sour cream, grated cheddar cheese, chopped green onion, and/or crispy fried bacon bits
Pre-heat oven to 350 deg F.
Tear 4 sheets of foil (about7 inches long). I like to cut each potato in half (but if you like your potato whole, then keep it whole). In the cut part, pour ½ Tbsp of oil on each half. Then place a few slivers of garlic and a sprig of rosemary or dill. Close the two halves and roll the potato in the foil, tightly. Do the same for each potato. If you need to keep track of what herb is in each potato, use a marker to write on the outside of the foil.
When all are wrapped, place them on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for one hour. When ready to serve, carefully unwrap the potatoes as they will be super hot! Remove the herbs and garlic. Salt and pepper your potato and add toppings.
If you have leftovers, we like to cut the potato into small pieces (about ¼ inch thick) and then fry them in oil the next day and have them as a side to our favourite eggs and either breakfast sausages or bacon! You can top the fried potatoes with the same toppings above! Delicious.
Crockpot tip: You can also cook these, wrapped in foil in a crockpot on low for 8 – 10 hours or high for 4 -6 hours. If you make them overnight in a crockpot (and why not?), you can eat the baked potatoes for breakfast… especially, if you have leftover steak to fry with some eggs!
