How to Cook Garlic Baked Potatoes

Step 1 Boil the Potatoes. Place the potato chunks in a large pot and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes until they are tender, about 15 minutes. Once tender, drain the potatoes through a colander.

Step 2 – Fry the Garlic and Rosemary. In a separate pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and chopped rosemary to the pan and fry until they turn golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Once done, remove the pan from the heat and drain the mixture through a colander to separate the oil from the garlic and rosemary.

Step 3 Season the Potatoes. In the same pan with the garlic and rosemary-infused oil, add salt, pepper, and paprika. Mix the seasoned oil with the boiled potatoes until they are well coated.

Step 4 – Preheat and Bake. Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F). Transfer the seasoned potatoes to a baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the potatoes are crispy on the outside.
