6 new potatoes
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon parsley flakes
unsalted butter, to taste (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Put 1 teaspoon of oil and a dash of parsley flakes on the center of two sheets of aluminum foil. Put 3 potatoes on top of the oil and parsley on each sheet. Roll the potatoes around to coat in the oil and parsley. Tightly wrap aluminum foil around the potatoes. Place both foil packets on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour or until soft. Open foil packets carefully. Put potatoes on a plate and smash with a fork. Top with butter, if desired. Serve with a good source of protein, such as my recipe for: Meatloaf, Salisbury Steak, or Swiss Steak. Have with a glass of water.
