Oh Sweet Day!

Thyme Garlic Hasselback Potato


Aren’t they beautiful! And tasty! And so easy and quick to cook! And the choices of ingredients are endless! I happened to put thyme and garlic, but how about chive, rosemary, sage, bacon, Parmesan cheese……

Ingredients (serves 4):

6 to 8 small sized Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and dried
1/4 cup olive oil
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves


Preheat oven to 425F.

On a cutting board, place one potato in a wooden spoon. Starting from one end of the potato, make slits about 1/8 inch apart. Try to cut at the very bottom of the potato, but not all the way through it. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.

Put slices of garlic in between every few slits of the potatoes.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet. Brush them all over with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with thyme.

Bake the potatoes for 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
