Monday is here again so here’s another meatless dish that was a people pleaser in our house. Start with enough Idaho potatoes that have been washed and dried to feed your crowd. Make small vertical slits in the potatoes, cutting ALMOST all the way through the bottom half of each potato. Mix about 1/2 stick of melted butter with 1/4 cup olive oil. Add a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of pepper and some fresh dried thyme (or any of your favorite fresh herbs) to the butter/oil mixture. Place potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle mixture over partially sliced potatoes. Place baking sheet and potatoes into a 425 degree preheated oven. Cook potatoes until slices are tender – about 45-60 minutes depending on how thick or thin the slices are. Place foil over potatoes before baking if you prefer the skins to be more tender and less dry. Perfect with winter soups or as a light meal.
