Pinterest Potatoes


A few medium potatoes (or however many you want to make. I made three. Two of my potatoes were pretty small.)
A quarter of a white onion, sliced thin (optional)
Fontina or parmesan cheese
Fresh rosemary, about one sprig or to taste
1-2 tablespoons of butter
1 garlic clove, pressed
Sea salt and pepper to taste
A few drizzles of olive oil (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the flattest side of your potato down, and cut 3-4 mm slices from one end of the potato to the other, but don’t cut all the way through. Spread potato slices out a bit. Place in an oven safe dish.

Combine garlic and butter in a small dish, preferably one with a spout. Heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the butter is melted. Pour over the potatoes, making sure to get it between the cracks. There will be butter spilled over into your dish, but that’s a good thing! Here’s where you can drizzle a little olive oil in the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and rosemary. If using onions, put them in your butter dish and swirl them around, so they get a light coating of butter and garlic. Or toss them in olive oil in a separate dish. (I’m lazy so I prefer to use as few dishes as possible when cooking so I don’t have as much to clean up.)

Bake the potatoes in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until they seem like they are pretty close to being done. Remove from oven and top with cheese and, if using, scatter onions in the dish. Bake for another 10-20 minutes, until cheese is melted and potatoes are crispy on the outside. Top with a bit more rosemary and fresh cheese and enjoy!
