Servings: 2


1 pound potatoes
olive oil
sprig of rosemary
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 350º F (180º C).

2. Clean the potatoes (no need to peel them). Use a knife to make crosswise slits all along each potato, cutting about 3/4 of the way down. Place potatoes in an oven-proof dish.

3. Stuff slits with a few sprigs of rosemary and drizzle olive oil over each potato. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Roast potatoes for 50 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through and the tops are crispy and brown.
