You know those 30 second recipe videos you see on your Facebook news feed on a daily basis? Well this post is sorta inspired by one of those, and while I definitely didn’t find it as easy as those videos make it look, these were pretty straightforward and extremely delicious!
You’ll need potatoes (large-ish ones work best!), butter, garlic and dried rosemary, a sharp knife and some kebab skewers.
Get your oven pre-heating at 180C, and stick each one of potatoes onto a skewer. Now this is the tricky bit.. Starting at one end of the potato, start to slice while turning the potato so you get one continuous cut all the way down the potato – don’t be afraid to cut all the way down to the skewer, this will make it easier to spread apart in a minute! Give the potato a little twist, and tug it so it stretches out down the skewer leaving the cuts open.
In a separate bowl, crush a garlic clove, and mash it with some butter – about 2-3 tbsp butter and half a clove per potato – then using a butter knife, slather the butter over the potato, getting into all the nooks. Top with a generous sprinkle of rosemary, then pop onto a baking tray.
Bake for 35-40 mins until golden and crispy, then slide the potatoes off the skewers and enjoy!
