Melissa's Cuisine: Crispy Garlic Potatoes

Crispy Garlic Potatoes

I mentioned on Monday that I love to make simple dishes that taste delicious.  I also like to make simple dishes that look complicated but aren't.  These potatoes are a good example--they look like they took a long time to make and have an impressive presentation.  Really, they were quite simple to put together. 

The flavors of these potatoes were fantastic!  I made a garlic infused olive oil to drizzle over the top of the potatoes before baking them.  I also placed some diced garlic between the pieces of the potatoes.  The result?  Perfectly garlicy potatoes!

Crispy Garlic Potatoes

Serves 6-8

You will need:
8 large russet potatoes, washed
5 Tablespoons olive oil
5 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
salt

1.  Using a sharp knife, or a mandolin slicer, thinly slice the potatoes widthwise. 

2.  Arrange sliced potatoes vertically in a casserole dish.

3.  In a small skillet, heat the olive oil and sliced garlic until the garlic is softened.

4.  Carefully pour the olive oil over the potatoes.  Try to get some between each potato.

5.  Place sliced garlic between potato slices.

6.  Sprinkle the potatoes with salt.

7.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy.

  2. Looks like a really good side dish! I'm wondering if Mike laughs when you take pictures before you can eat. My family does!

    1. Yes, he does. Sometimes he knows supper is ready but then he hears me taking pictures. Sometimes I have to reheat our food because I took to long taking pictures :)
