How to cook baked potatoes plus a few serving ideas

Although baked potatoes are often served as a side with a knob of butter or sour cream, baked potatoes are great as a lunch or simple dinner.

Here are a few ideas for stuffing a humble baked potato but first, let’s get some cooked.

How to cook baked potatoes

  • 8 oz russet or sweet potatoes
  1. Piece potatoes all over with a fork.
  2. Microwave on medium, turning once or twice, until soft – about 20 minutes.
  3. Alternativey, bake at 425 until tender – about 45 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a cutting board and allow to cook.
  5. Holding the potato with a kitchen towel, make a lengthwise cut to open each potato, but don’t cut all the way through.
  6. Pinch the ends to expose the inside.

NOTE: You can store your baked potato in the fridge very successfully, for up to 5 days. They will get a little sticky but are perfect for creating potato wedges.
