Old, floury potatoes are best for baking – Agria is a good variety.

Prep Time: 1 hour Servings: 4
  • 4 large potatoes of about the same size


    butter or sour cream

    crisply cooked bacon, crumbled

    grated cheese

    chopped chives

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C.

  • 2. Scrub the potatoes and dry them well then pierce the skin in several places with a fine skewer.

  • 3. Put the potatoes directly onto the rack in the centre of the oven and cook for about 1 hour.

  • 4. Test the potatoes with a skewer to check if the centre is completely soft.

  • 5. Remove from the oven with care – they will be extremely hot – cut a cross in the top of each potato with a sharp knife and push in at the sides so that the top opens out. Serve with butter or other toppings of your choice.
