Enough potatoes for each person and the same number of bay leaves, and one and a half tablespoons of olive oil, a small amount chopped, fresh garlic.
Preheat oven to 400F, Make a deep slit in the long side of each scrubbed potato - about three quarters of the way through - and insert a bay leaf into the slit. Put oil in a baking dish in the oven and when hot, add the garlic. Roll the potatoes in the oil so that all surfaces are covered. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. The potatoes will become flavoured by the bay leaves.
