Garlic butter potato bites

You know how you shouldn’t grocery shop when you’re hungry? Well you also probably shouldn’t cook something for your blog while (really) hungry, because you may forget to photograph said item before it is devoured. Oops.
Last night, I had sirloin burgers on the menu but wanted something a little different to go with them. We’d had French fries the night before, the Mr. has requested the Pioneer Woman’s potato wedges so often I’ve grown temporarily tired of them (though I fully expect to be back on their bandwagon by next week) and I was pretty sure the 2 handfuls of Cheetos left in the bag wouldn’t be enough to feed us both. So, I created this garlicy treat.

1 baking potato
1/2 stick unsalted butter
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
Coarse black pepper
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Wash the potato and slice it. Cut each slice into quarters.
In a food processor or mixer, combine the butter and garlic.
Cover a baking sheet in foil and spray with Pam or similar cooking spray.
Arrange the potato pieces on the baking sheet.
Crumble the butter mixture across the top.
Season generously with Lawry’s and pepper.
Cook 20-30 minutes, depending on potato thickness. Mine took 24 minutes to be nice and tender.
