I saw these potatoes while clicking around a blog carnival. I was immediately smitten, despite not being the biggest fan of potatoes.
We had company this week for dinner, so what better time to try something "special?" In reality it's just a baked potato, but the presentation is what earns it a gold star.
I used Chris's pictured tip of slicing the potato sandwiched between two items to avoid cutting all the way through. He used chopsticks, I used the handles of two wooden spoons. (See his post for photo demonstration.)
There really isn't a recipe, per se.
Just grab potatoes, give them a good scrub, slice them, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with Kosher salt and black pepper. Pop into a 350° oven for about an hour, until the insides are tender and the outside is crisp and browned.
Serve plain, with butter, with sour cream, or ketchup!
