1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 475° F.
2. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each potato so they lay flat.
3. Using a knife make about 20 slices ( ¼-inch deep) lengthwise from end-to-end across the tops of the potatoes, making sure not to cut all the way through. Leave about a half an inch on the bottom of the potato un-cut.
