I found this recipe in the latest edition of Martha Stewart Living. I thought they looked interesting and decided to give them a whirl at my next dinner party. They were good! Not only are these potatoes pretty on the plate, but they are a nice alternative to the plain old baked spud.
From Martha Stewart Living, December 2011
6 baking potatoes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Scrub and wash the potatoes. Peel the potatoes halfway down on the long side. Use a knife to cut the peeled side of the potatoes into thin slices about 2/3 of the way through. Be careful, it's easy to cut too deeply. If you do, just use a small piece of aluminum foil to hold the slices together.
Brush the cut sides of the potatoes with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Arrange the potatoes in a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 1 hour. Serve with butter or margarine.
