Olive's Baked Potatoes

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

When we made our move across the country, we stopped by my Great Aunt Ann’s house in Memphis, TN. She inherited all of my Great Grandmother’s recipe books and I was eager to have a look through them! The diamond from my engagement ring was passed down to me from my Great Grandmother so even though we never met, I feel a special connection to her. I couldn’t wait to read her recipes written in her own handwriting. I jotted down quite a few recipes before my hands gave out on me! Many of my Great Grandmother’s recipes came from her dear friend Olive. The recipe I am sharing today is courtesy of Olive! 

Baked Potatoes are a classic side dish that pair well with so many main dishes. These baked potatoes are changed just enough to make an impact while still retaining the classic flavors that will pair beautifully with a nice juicy steak or Thanksgiving dinner.
