Lynn demonstrates a very easy side dish that would be a great side dish for a Holiday meal.
Preheat oven to 425°.
Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8" intervals, cutting to within ¼ of the bottom. Be careful not to slice all the way through. The potato will fan out a bit as it bakes.
Combine olive oil, garlic , salt, smoked paprika and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
Lay the potatoes on a baking sheet. Carefully insert pinches of this mixture in between the slits of the potatoes. Rub the outsides of the potatoes with the residual oil.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes. The inside should be cooked through and the outside of the potato should be a bit crispy.
Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and chives.
