700g of medium potatoes
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 190°
Make small slits in each potato, careful not to cut all the way through. The potato should look like an accordion.
Place the potatoes on a greased or non stick backing tray
In a bowl, combine the melted butter, oil and garlic.
Brush the mixture over the potatoes then season with salt and pepper
Bake for 20 minutes, the slits will start to separate and turn golden
Brush the potatoes with more of the mixture, sprinkle on the mozzarella and parmesan, bake for a further 20 - 25 minutes
Garnish with parsley and serve warm
Try adding other herbs like rosemary or topping with bacon and sour cream
