These fun potatoes are roasted with chives until tender and crisp for a delicious side to any meal.
8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter, softened
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
⅓ cup finely chopped chives
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed
1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
2. Stir together the butter, olive oil, chives and some salt and pepper in a small bowl.
3. Place a potato between the handles of 2 wooden spoons or 2 chopsticks. Slice the potato into thin slices, leaving 1/4 inch at the bottom unsliced; the spoon handles will prevent you from slicing the potato all the way through. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
4. Put the potatoes on a baking sheet and brush on the butter mixture, making sure to get in between all the slices. Bake until tender and crisp, 55 to 60 minutes.
