Easy Dinner Idea: Hasselback Potato

So I've been having a pretty lazy day today and didn't feel like putting a lot of effort into my dinner. I'm sure you know the feeling. So I decided to try a recipe I found ages ago and just never got around to trying.  I have no idea why these potatoes are called Hasselback, presumably after a guy named Hasselback, who knows.  Im writing this as its cooking and can hear the butter sizzling so lets get started! 

What you'll need:
1 Medium Size Potatoes
1 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
 Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Grated Parmesan Cheese

First, Preheat your oven to 425. Then, Cut your garlic into little pieces, make sure they're thin!

Then, Wash your potato and lay it on a cutting board flat side down.  Begin making cuts down almost to the bottom, MAKE SURE NOT TO CUT THROUGH, and about 3mm thick.

Stuff the cut up garlic into maybe every other cut.

Go ahead and put on as much butter as you want, most of it melts off anyway  ;)

Then comes the olive oil, just drizzle it on.
Next the salt and pepper.

And Finally as much cheese as you see fit, the original recipe doesn't call for cheese, but lets face it, everything's better with cheese.

Then pop that bad boy into the oven for 40-45 mins, until its brown and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Yum! Bon Apetite!
