Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 45 - 50

Ingredients

4 Russet Potatoes
2 heaping Tbsp. Pesto
1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan
1 Tbsp. EVOO
Sea Salt / Black Pepper

Sour Cream, EVOO, Fresh Parsley - Garnish


Preheat oven to 425 F


In a small dish, whisk together the pesto, parmesan, and EVOO.


Slice the potatoes width wise evenly from one end to the other slicing ALMOST the entire way through. Place the potatoes in an oiled baking dish.


Brush the pesto mix over each of the potatoes trying to cover the entire potato including the sides. Season each potato with sea salt and black pepper. Place the dish in the oven to bake for 25 minutes.


Remove the potatoes and brush them once again with the pesto mixture. Return them to the oven for 20 – 25 minutes until fully cooked.


Remove the potatoes from the oven and brush them one last time with the pesto mixture.


For service, a dollop of sour cream, a drizzle of EVOO, a pinch of salt and pepper, and fresh parsley are the perfect garnishes!


ENJOY!
