Several Idaho baking potatoes or Yukon Gold potatoes
Several cloves of garlic, sliced
Coarse (Kosher) Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat over to 400F.
Wash each potato. Cut slits into potatoes about 1/8 inch thick, but do not cut all the way through the potatoes (I put a wooden spoon on each side of the potato).
Place a slice of garlic in between each slice of potato. Cut more garlic as needed.
Drizzle potatoes with olive oil, and then sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Bake at 400F for about an hour. Check--bake up to another 30-45 minutes if necessary.
Before, notice the wooden spoons.
Ready for the oven.
All done! Smells great!
