Bay Baked Potatoes


Bay Baked Potatoes

Adapted from A Passion for Vegetables by Lorenza De'Medici

Place medium-sized unpeeled potatoes in a baking dish so there is space between each potato. Drizzle with olive oil and  thoroughly rub each potato. Slit each potato almost through leaving about a quarter inch at the bottom uncut. Place a bay leaf in the slit (you may also want to put a drop or two of olive oil in as you do so--but it isn’t necessary). Set in baking dish. Sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper and bake at 350F until they are done, turning and seasoning the other side after 30 minutes. These will take an hour or so.  You can also do this with small potatoes.

This can also be done with a sprig of rosemary in place of the bay, but then it won’t be called Bay Baked Potatoes.
