Baked A Potato Recipe
- 4 large potatoes
- Olive oil
- Ground black pepper
- Toppings to taste (eg butter, grated cheese, smoked beef sliced dice, parsley, broccoli, etc.)
- Preheat the oven to 175 C for 10 minutes while you prepare the potatoes.
- Brush and wash the potatoes under running water until clean. Dry it. Then, prick the potatoes with a fork.
- Brush the entire surface of the potato with oil, then sprinkle salt and pepper
- Roast potatoes at 175 C for 1 hour. Potato skin will feel crispy while the inside is soft
- Remove the potatoes. Cut the potato skin from end to end using a knife, then press both ends of the potato toward the middle so that the potato skin opens and shows its contents.
- Add toppings. Serve potatoes while warm.
- The original baked potato recipe uses russet potatoes (Burbank / Idaho), which is a type of large potato with dark brown skin and has few potato eyes. The meat is white, dry, and contains a lot of flour, making it suitable for making baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and French fries.
- Pricking the potatoes before baking them is important so that the moisture in the potatoes can come out during the roasting process and the potatoes don't explode in the oven.
- The temperature and the baking time can be reduced if the potatoes you use are small. But if you bake more than four large potatoes at once, you need to extend the baking time to 15 minutes.
- You can also serve baked potatoes in other ways. After the potatoes are roasted and opened, remove the contents into a bowl, stir the contents of the potatoes with the topping, then put the contents of the potatoes back into the skin. Serve.
- In addition to baking the potatoes in the above way, you can also wrap the potatoes using aluminum foil before baking them. As a result, the potato skin will be soft, cooked evenly, and warm longer.
- An alternative to using an oven is to use a microwave. Heat it on full power for 5 minutes, turn the potatoes over, then heat again for 3-5 minutes. Make sure the center is soft. The result is a soft-skinned potato with a quick roasting time.
