Place one of many trays within the prime half of the oven and one of many trays within the backside half of the oven and swap the trays round once you baste the potatoes, so that they’re all evenly cooked.
Will not the garlic burn?
When you baste the potatoes 2-3 occasions throughout cooking, ideally making an attempt to get the bits of garlic on prime and contained in the slices of potato, it should not burn.
I’ve discovered even the garlic that is left on the backside of the pan will brown, however should not go black or bitter tasting, as long as you are utilizing the right amount of oil and butter.
