Slinky Potato

Today is a beautiful day in Milwaukee. The sun is shining and the air is warm. I am planning on biking shortly! It is days like these, that Milwaukee becomes alive with people, and it really lifts your spirits.

For lunch today, I was feeling like making something a bit out of the ordinary. These potatoes are a fun and tasty alternative to the classic baked potato. They take a while to bake, but the preparation time is very short.

Slinky Potato
1 clove of garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Slice potato cross-wise about 1/8 of on inch thick. Don't cut the potato all the way through, so the potato stays in one piece, but fans open. Slice the garlic clove into thin discs.

2. Place garlic discs between each potato slice. Spread butter over top of potato, and drizzle with olive oil. Top with salt and pepper.

3. Bake in oven for about 45 minutes or until the potato is fully cooked.
