Garlic potato recipe? That sounds kind of weird... Actually, not really. This potato recipe is delicious! It's a very unique and delightful way of baking potatoes.

Here's what you need.

Garlic Potato Recipe
Potatoes - 4 to 6 medium size
Garlic - 4 to 6 cloves (thinly slice)
4 tablespoons of low fat butter
4 tablespoons of low fat yogurt
Finely diced chives - 2 tablespoon
Salt - 1teaspoon

Preheat the oven to 400F.
Wash, and then slice each potato at 1/2 cm intervals. Cut about 3/4 way through (make sure not all the way). So the potatoes have many slits in them.
Place the garlic slices in the slits. Then bake for 60 to 75 minutes - until soft.
Mix the low fat yogurt with low fat butter, diced chives, and slat. Mix well. Use this as the topping for the potatoes.
Amazingly, this delicious potato recipe has less than 4 grams of fat!

I have done a similar recipe where you put fresh herbs of your choice in the slits and bake.....sprigs of rosemary are especially good. Usually I have to wrap a little foil around the potato to hold it together.

Another one that is a little more time consuming is to thinly slice a white potato and a sweet potato (I use the slicer on the food processor). Place a slice of either potato on a sprayed cookie sheet and put a piece of fresh herb on the slice. Place a slice of the other potato on top. Spray the slices with cooking spray and bake until soft, turning once after slices kind of seal together

That sounds devine!

I am doing weight watchers. First time ever. So far I am rather impressed with it. I am always looking for recipe's that don't swim in butter or oil....like so many of mine do!

Another "low cal" recipe is to put a head of garlic and sprigs of fresh herbs in the water when boiling potatoes......makes them flavorful and you don't need much fat.....as you can tell, I love fresh herbs :lol:
Good luck with weightwatchers, Fairy

oops.. no, sorry. Just googled images for hassleback potatoes and inserted the pic here so everyone could see how yummy they look. :grin:

I saw your original post and voyeurs which were both variations on Hassleback Potatoes. There are so many variations, they are all yummy, and they always look so special. They are a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. That is why I inserted the pic. Sorry for the tease. :lol:

Heres a Hassleback potato recipe that I found:

Ingredients
6 medium baking potatoes , peeled
1/4 cup butter , melted
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons shredded swiss cheese (or Parmesan)
Directions

1.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2.

Put a chopstick or pencil along each long side of the potato so you don't cut through to the counter. Using a sharp knife, cut potatoes almost through cross-wise in 1/8â€
