3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. thyme (leaves from 4 sprigs)
2 T. butter
1 T. olive oil
Cut the potatoes in 1/8 inch intervals, but not all the way through, as shown above. Put potatoes in shallow baking dish. Mix garlic and thyme together and stuff between potato slices. Melt butter and combine with olive oil; pour over potatoes. Bake 400 degrees F for 1 hour. Monitor closely -- potatoes should be crisp on outside, but done on inside.
