Tips for some yummy baked potatoes

  • Baking potatoes can also be baked at the same time as meat or fish. Just pay attention to synchronize the baking of the meat or fish for the two to end up together.
  • They can also be made in the microwave. They will not be as good but it is a valid option to use less oil and have fewer calories. So if you don’t want to stain a frying pan, the only thing you do is break all the ingredients. We put salt and oil together with them and put it in a bowl with tightly covered plastic wrap.
  • We make a few holes with a toothpick and put it in the microwave at full power for 10 minutes. They will not turn out golden but they will turn out perfect I assure you.
