Cook time: 40 minutes
2 medium-sized potatoes
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Maldon sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

3. Arrange the potatoes on a baking tray, and insert the garlic between the slits. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes. Sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper for extra flavor.
4. Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes, or until they turn crispy and the flesh is soft.
