Another blast from the past; I’m not a lover of potatoes, but I do like these.
- baking potatoes
- olive oil
- freshly ground black pepper
Put the potatoes onto a greased baking tray, and bake at 375F for about 45 minutes to an hour (until tender)
Remove from oven and make an X-cut in the top of each potato, then squash each potato with a potato masher, or a mug or plate. The idea is to flatten them, not mash them. You want the skins to crack and the insides to be rough.
Drizzle each potato (liberally) with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
Bake at 450F for about 15 to 20 more minutes, until crispy and golden.
