Flattened Redskin Potatoes

These potatoes are the perfect side dish to accompany just about any main dish. I usually make them when I already have something in the oven, because they easily adjust to any oven temperature.
Ingredients:

  • 5-6 Redskin Potatoes (I usually make 1-2 potatoes per person depending on size of the potato)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions
Put potatoes in water, bring to boil.
Once boiling cook 7-9 minutes or until they are tender enough to stick knife in with ease. Remove from water.
Preheat oven to 400. Place potatoes on foil lined baking sheet. Lightly press with bottom of drinking glass. (Be sure to do this slowly so potato does not go everywhere).
Melt butter and garlic in bowl in microwave.
Brush over potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until skins are slightly crisp. These potatoes are good on their own, but even better when served with Loaded Potato Dip (see other recipe)
