You will appreciate this dish more often than at Christmas. You don’t have to watch these very carefully and they keep well in the warming oven.
As I said about Baked Onions, I’ve made this dish. I just didn’t take any pictures. As I recall, they actually look as they do in this photograph. Yummy, too!
4 pounds baking potatoes
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. sweet paprika
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/2 cup chicken stock
flour for dusting, if desired
Peel the potatoes and quarter them lengthwise. Place the potatoes in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish or sheet pan. Add the remaining ingredients, except the chicken stock. Turn the potatoes to coat them evenly. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 1 hour. Add the chicken stock and bake 1 hour longer, turning the potatoes a few times during cooking. You may also dust the potatoes with a little flower toward the end of the cooking time and place under the broiler for a nice browned effect.
