How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Wash and dry the potatoes (scrub if very dirty).
  • Act as though you were going to cut each potato into very thin crosswise slices, but cut only about 80% of the way through (the potatoes need to stay intact).
  • Toss the garlic, olive oil, harissa (or other spices of your choosing), and a couple of pinches of salt together in a small bowl.
  • Tuck garlic slices into crevices of potatoes and rub the outside of the potatoes with any leftover harissa-spiked olive oil.
  • Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and place them on a baking sheet or in a baking dish.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes, then uncover and bake another 20 minutes or until tender.
  • While the potatoes are baking, make the dipping sauce.
  • Combine yogurt, mint, cilantro, salt, and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl and stir well.
  • Serve the potatoes with the dipping sauce on the side or drizzled on top.

    Rockstar, try placing the potatoes on a large wooden spoon. It allows you to slice the potatoes but stops the knife from going all the way through....;-)~ Jim

    Gorgeous! I have made these potatoes but not with the dipping sauce. I love yogurt and mint together. I will be making that great sounding sauce next time I do these. Thanks for Sharing .......;-)~ Jim
