The Perfect Baked Potato

Baked potatoes are so great this time of year, so filling, so comforting, so warm.

I love the versatility of how to dress mine up, will it be calorie loaded or heathy? A potato bar is great for a family weeknight dinner, or a weekend get-together with friends, people love choices :)

To make my potatoes I simply give them a good scrub, dry them off. Prick lots with a fork and rub in olive oil and sprinkle with corse salt. Place on a baking tray and cook in oven at 350 for about 2 hours until soft.

Next score in 4ths, pinch and fluff using fork and butter. Finish with topping of your choice. My faves have always been cottage cheese with a pinch of pepper, baked beans and cheese, and coleslaw. Curry is also amazing.

What do you top your taters with? Do tell!

    Don’t forget to prick them in several places with a fork, or they might burst all over your lovely clean oven,…….Not good!
