A couple sour cream, some shredded cheese, chives, etc. I put all the scooped out potatoes in one bowl, mash them, then add separately the rest of the ingredients in a smaller bowl.
Huh, cutting the potatoes horizontally is an interesting idea. I cut them lengthwise because I like to pick the whole thing up and eat it skin and all. I usually do mine the same way though, just mash them all together in one bowl.

I cut them that way mainly so I can utilize a muffin tin for the second bake. They sit nice and tall and get a nice crisp skin and top.

I usually put tinfoil directly on the oven rack and use the wire rungs to hold my lengthwise potatoes upright :)

chives, nutmeg, potatoes, recipe, walnut oil

Potatoes Anyone? You will need very thin skinned red potatoes,about 2 lbs, So in a large skillet c/i if possible, heat 1/4 cp best walnut oil, til hot but not smoking, I use med-high heat add the potatoes and saute, shaking the pan to toss from time to time, til the spuds are cooked through and browned all sides, about 20 min. season with salt and pepper, and don't forget the nutmeg fresh ground. add more s&p if needed to Serve sprinkle on 4 finely chopped garlic cloves,1-small bunch of parsley and 1 of chives toss to blend serve. I love this with a roasted chicken. Or just a green sald, bread and potatoes. Yummy kades 3 stars 1 reviews
