Herbed Potatoes
Baked Russet potatoes, fresh out of the oven!
An inexpensive way to WOW your guests.
All you need is olive oil, salt/pepper, and sprigs of fresh herbs.
You can use any herb of your choice, (ex: rosemary, parsley, sage, basil, oregano and/or thyme).

  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 1/3-1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Sprigs of fresh herbs

Preheat the oven to 400°F degrees.

Wash and dry the potatoes, leaving the skin on; cut in half lengthwise.

Pour the olive oil in a glass or ceramic baking dish and add the salt and pepper; mix well.

Press your herb of choice on the cut side of each potato and position cut side down in the oil. Don’t crowd them; leave enough room in between each half.

Bake until nicely browned, about 45 minutes.
Check the potatoes after 15 minutes and gently move them with a fork or spatula so they do not stick. You can also brush the top skin side of the potato halves with a little olive oil to crisp them up.

Serve hot from the oven.
