Sliced Baked Potato with Mojo Verde


Baked Potatoes

  • Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and dried
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Slice slits in potatoes roughly 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch apart. Tip: Don't try to cut as close to the bottom as possible, you may end up cutting all the way through. You can always cut the slits a little deeper as the potato begins to bake.
  3. Brush potatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake potatoes on a baking sheet or in a baking dish for 30 minutes.
  5. Now that the potatoes have begun to fan out, brush them with olive oil, once again.
  6. Bake for an additional 30 minutes.
