Servings : 6 Serves
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 6 small russet potatoes , scrubbed, rinsed and dried (do not peel)
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 garlic cloves , minced
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
  • 1 cup Italian shredded cheese , optional
  • fresh chopped parsley


  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Grease a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Place a potato between 2 chopsticks.
  • Slice the potato into thin slices, leaving 1/4 inch at the bottom unsliced; the chopsticks will prevent you from slicing the potato all the way through.
  • Repeat with the remaining potatoes and transfer them to the prepared baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Melt butter over medium-heat in a large nonstick skillet or pan.
  • Add garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring very frequently. DO NOT burn the garlic.
  • Brush the prepared garlic butter over the potatoes, making sure to get in between all the slices.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until tender and crisp. Cooking time will also depend on the size of your potatoes. 
  • Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from oven, garnish with parsley, and serve.
