Preheat the oven to 180 °C. 

Using a sharp knife, hasselback each potato and arrange in a roasting dish.Poke a few slices of garlic into each potato. 

In a saucepan, gently heat the butter and bay leaves, removing the leaves once the butter begins to brown.

Poke the leaves in between the slices of the potatoes and pour over the browned butter. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper and roast for 30–40 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
