prep: 20 mins cook: 1 hr 5 mins total: 1 hr 25 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 potatoes


fresh rosemary

lemon juice

4 large Idaho® Russet Potatoes

fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

1 large clove garlic, sliced


4 tablespoons butter or oil



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Prepare a bowl of cold water with a squeeze of lemon juice in it. Slice off the bottom of each Idaho® Russet Potato lengthwise to make them steadier for cutting. Place potato between two chopsticks. Cut slits 1/4 apart using the chopsticks as a guide to keep from cutting all the way through. The slices should stay connected at the bottom. Carefully fan out the sliced pieces without breaking them apart. Place the cut potato in the prepared bowl of water while you cut the remaining potatoes.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add a couple of sprigs of rosemary, the sliced garlic, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Let sit a few minutes to season the butter.

Remove potatoes from water and dry thoroughly. Place on a baking sheet. Brush potatoes with some of the melted butter and bake for 1 hour. Halfway through cooking, the potatoes will start to fan out. When this happens, brush with some more of the melted butter.

Remove from the oven. Brush with remaining butter, sprinkle with salt, and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve right away.
