How to Make Po-ta-to or Po-Tah-to (Sallye)
- Preheat oven to 350º F
Scrub the potatoes well to remove all dirt
Prick each potato several times with a fork or skewer
Place potatoes in shallow baking pan in single layer and roast for 1-2 hours until tender but still firm when gently squeezed (Check after 1 hour, then every 15 minutes thereafter so you won't overcook them).
- While potatoes are roasting, do the following:
Peel garlic cloves and place in food processor
NOTE: Use more or less garlic to suit your tastes
Cut stems off mint and discard; place mint leaves in food processor
Pulse until mint and garlic are finely minced
- When potatoes are done, remove from oven and cut in half with sharp knife
Place the cut potatoes in large bowl
Add garlic and mint, olive oil, salt and pepper to potatoes and toss lightly, making sure all potatoes are covered
- Let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
