Naomi's Baked Hedgehog Potatoes

Naomi's Baked Hedgehog Potatoes

Introduction

Notes from Naomi:
A couple of hints about this recipe:
This can easily be made with red, new potatoes. Not really recommended with bakers – they’re too big for this. The potatoes will fan open in the oven and look hedgehog-like – hence the name.

If you like some kick, add the crushed red pepper; if not, fine without it.

I usually put garlic in every third slice of the potato – put less if you’d like them less garlicky. Or, put none at all. Again, it’ll be fine without.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    8 smallish purple or red potatoes
    6 large cloves garlic, sliced into razor-thin rounds
    2 Tbs EVOO
    1 tsp of crushed hot red pepper (optional)
    Fine-grain sea salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 375F

Wash and dry the potatoes. Act as if you were going to cut each potato into very thin crosswise slices, but only cut 80 percent of the way through; the potatoes need to stay intact. Toss the garlic, olive oil, red pepper and a couple pinches of salt together in a small bowl. Tuck the garlic slices deep into the potato crevices and rub the outsides of the potatoes with any leftover olive oil mixture. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and place them on a baking sheet or tuck them into a baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes, then uncover and bake for another 20 minutes, or until fork-tender.
