Garlic thyme and anchovy baked potatoes

Category: food


  • Serves: 4
  • Time needed: 1 hour 40 minutes
  • Difficulty Easy


Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 4 tsps softened butter
  • 4 baking potatoes
  • 4 anchovies (or if you prefer, use 4 rashers of bacon)
  • 1 handful of fresh thyme sprigs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Step 1

    Pound the garlic and butter in a pestle and mortar until smooth. Season with lots of pepper but hold back on the salt for now to accommodate for the anchovies or bacon (you can always add more later)

  • Step 2

    Cut each potato into 8 slices and coat each slice in the butter mix. Reassemble each potato on a piece of double-thick foil and place a small piece of anchovy (or bacon) and a sprig of thyme between the slices. Carefully wrap the potatoes.

  • Step 3

    Lay the wrapped spuds on the barbie on a low heat for 1-1½ hours, depending on their size and turning every now and again. Cook until tender and beware of the escaping steam when you unwrap them!
