• 4 medium Yukon gold or russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of salt


  • Preheat oven to 475° F (250° C)
  • Cut a thin slice off the bottom each potato so they don’t roll around
  • Make about 20 slices across each potato, making sure not to cut all the way through (leave about half an inch uncut)
  • Mix the melted butter and oil in a bowl
  • Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and brush with half of the butter and oil mixture and sprinkle with salt
  • Bake potatoes for about 30 minutes
  • Brush the potatoes with the remaining butter and oil mixture and bake for an additional 45 minutes
  • Stop drooling and enjoy!
