baked potatoes

2019-10-21 a.o.

This is not something I make very often. When I do, I buy these extra-big 'baking' potatoes.

I prefer to cook them without foil and at lower temperature, to get less of that tough layer under the skin.


This is what you need for 2 servings:

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • butter
  • S&P
