    Salt Crusted Baked Potatoes
    4 russet potatoes
    2-4 tablespoons olive oil
    2-4 tablespoons kosher salt
    Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Butter
    8 tablespoons butter, softened
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly chopped rosemary
    1 whole head garlic, roasted
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

    Scrub the russet potatoes to remove any dirt. Dry with a paper towel. Brush or rub each potato with olive oil, enough to completely coat them. I use spray cooking oil on each side to keep it simple. Sprinkle each oil-rubbed potato generously with 1/2-1 tablespoon of salt, rubbing it around to evenly coat the skin of each potato. Place potatoes on the foil-lined baking sheet. Do not poke holes in the potatoes!

    Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes, turning halfway through cooking, until the potatoes are soft when you squeeze them with an oven mitt or a fork slides easily in and out.

    Create a slit down the center of each potato, starting 1/2-inch from each end, then squeeze the potato open to reveal the fluffy center. Top with Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Butter.

    Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Butter
    In a medium bowl, add the softened butter, salt, and rosemary. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of the papery skin into the bowl with the butter, and stir or mash everything together until combined. Line a plate with plastic wrap and drop spoonfuls of the butter mixture onto it before refrigerating until firm. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ It can take longer than 60 minutes to bake them. Best to poke them with a fork to be sure they are baked completely. I turn them after 30 or 35 minutes. THEY ARE TERRIFIC. You can use granulated or powdered garlic in the Garlic & Rosemary Butter. I just bake them in an old PYREX baking dish, no foil; and just scrub it with a steel wool pad after it soaks in hot soapy water for a half hour or so. -------------------------------------------- Good with the Garlic - Rosemary Butter topping, or with sour cream - chives, or with French Onion Dip as a topping.
