‘Savoury and Effortless’

Welcome back to my little ‘Secret Kitchen Corner’…that’s not a secret anymore:)

Today I have something really simple and delicious for you!

…a tasty side dish that you can prepare without any effort and which can accompany anything from red meat to fish or even on its own, whenever you have a craving for comfort food.

Harmonica Baked Potato
Harmonica Baked Potato

I’ve found this recipe in one of my close friends recipe book and I just loved it…there is many ways to do it, I choose to take it to another level to intensify the taste!

Looks simple but it tastes absolutely amazing:)

Ingredients: 1 potato/person with skin on, 2 tbs olive oil, rosemary, 1 clove of garlic, oregano, salt, white pepper, butter. The quantities shown here are for one large potato!

Method: Cut the potato as shown in the picture very gently keeping the bottom as a whole ( resembling to a harmonica ). Heat up the olive oil, add the rosemary, oregano, crushed garlic and white pepper. Use a wooden spoon to mix it for a few seconds until the olive oil is infused with the herbs.

It only takes a few seconds…make sure you do not burn the herbs:)

Preheat the oven.

Place the harmonica shaped potatoes on a baking paper and then transfer them to a baking tray.

Pour over the herb infused olive oil and bake in the oven for 1 hour. They are ready when they start to turn golden; if you have left some olive oil, you can brush them during baking, if you see they are turning too dry.

Once you’ve removed them from the oven, sprinkle sea salt for taste and cut thin slices of butter and place them between the layers…this will melt in seconds and soften the potato.

Serve immediately next to a beautiful steak…stuffed chicken breast…oven baked fish…or just on its own with some tasty cheese on top:)


Bon appetit!
