These oven baked potatoes do look so gorgeous and taste terrific, crunchy yet soft, creamy and salty. This is such a great recipe for Thanksgiving.
I was searching the web for inspiration for my Thanksgiving menu when I came across these oven baked potatoes at the website of Martha Stewart. Don't they look terrific. Just looking at this dish makes me thankful. And hungry to. Not only does it look terrific it tastes delicious. The outside of the potatoes are crunchy, yet the inside are soft. They're a bit buttery, but got a nice touch of salt and herbs. Yes, this is great for Thanksgiving.
- you want your potatoes to be done, make sure you slice very thin. Don't slice through and through tough because then you get sliced potatoes instead of this beautiful dish.
- you want color you choose a shallot. But every type of onion will do.
- you want to get a crunchy crust, smear the outside of the potatoes with the butter.
