How to Make a Garlic Lovers Baked Potato

How to Make a Garlic Lovers Baked Potato

This recipe is for true lovers of garlic that have worked their way up to eating it raw.

Things You’ll Need: Baked Potato, Butter, Olive Oil, Fresh Garlic, Salt (Optional).

PREPARE GARLIC - Chop a clove of garlic and let it soak in a small bowl of olive oil. At my house, I chop a whole bulb of garlic and let it soak in olive oil all week in the refrigerator, that way it is handy whenever I need some.

BAKE POTATO - Wash your potato thoroughly and stab it with a fork a couple of times to vent. For a MICROWAVE OVEN: place the potato in the microwave for approximately 6 minutes. For the regular OVEN: wrap it in foil and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until soft.

BUTTER & SALT - When your potato is soft slice it open and mash up the inside with a fork, at butter and salt to taste. Then add the garlic and a little of the olive oil. Mix it in with the mashed up potato. The same instructions work well for a sweet potato or yam and they are much healthier.
