Herb Butter Baked Potato

Jazz up your ordinary baked potato with fresh herbs and garlic!  This recipe can easily be made ahead making it a great side dish for summertime cooking. Herb Butter Baked PotatoesTruth be told I don’t make potatoes often enough.  I’m not sure why because I actually love potatoes.  I grew up eating potatoes practically everyday.  That German and Irish blood in me is boiling for some taters!

This recipe is great because it just takes a few minutes of prep and you have a delicious side dish that will please even the pickiest eaters!

Herb Butter Baked PotatoesI like a good old-fashioned Idaho potato, medium to large in size, wash them up real good.  Scrub a dub dub four taters in the tub, and who were they for to eat?!

The butcher the baker the candle stick maker!  Serve them up taters all three!

Sorry,  I’m easily distracted by random nursery rhymes popping up in my head.  I love me some Mother Goose.

Back to the potato; slice into thin slices about 3/4 of the way through you want to keep the potato together.  If you can get 10-12 slices that’s perfect.

Herb Butter Baked PotatoesWrap potatoes up in foil, making sure that the foil is wrapped so that none of the buttery goodness comes running out.  You can make Herb Butter Baked Potatoes a day ahead if you are having a big dinner.  Store them in the refrigerator and then place them on a baking sheet; bake when ready.  We are a family of six but 4 potatoes is perfect for us, no one ever eats a whole potato.

I will say that if there are leftovers they make great breakfast potatoes fried up with a little pepper and onion!  Or you could use them in breakfast burritos….now there’s a great idea!
