Garlic Roasted Spuds


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Place a skewer half way through each potato and cut horizontal slits on the potatoes until you feel the knife hitting the skewer.
  • In a small bowl, combine the butter, olive oil, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper and black pepper together. Stir to combine well.
  • Toss the potatoes with the garlic mixture, coat well. Make sure the garlic mixture gets inside the slits of the potatoes.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a roasting pan.
    Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes, then turn them over and baste with the garlic oil.
  • Roast for another 20 minutes. Remove from heat, garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
