This is something that I've taken to making a lot because it's really easy and I really love potatoes. Really really love potatoes. I'm the type of person who orders french fries and a baked potato for my two sides. Not the healthiest thing to do, but potatoes are just so good. I'm working on loving other vegetables as much (I'm pretty much there with squash and asparagus).
All you need is four to five medium/large sized potatoes, some olive oil, pepper, and salt. Personally, I like freshly ground salt and pepper for this, but you can use regular table salt and pepper. I have, and it still tastes fantastic. It's a very simple dish, so feel free to spice it up with some paprika or dill (I've done both, and I love it).
Since I'm making this for my sister and me, I used four potatoes, and I didn't use any seasonings other than salt and pepper. Delena does not like spicy-hot things, and I'm just not feeling the dill tonight. I probably should have only used three potatoes, but there were four potatoes total, and I felt bad about leaving one of the potatoes all by itself. So we'll probably have some left over. That will actually be new for this dish because we've never had any of it left by the end of the day.
When the timer dings again, they should be done! You can test the potatoes by seeing how easy it is to stick a toothpick or a fork in them. Be careful! The times may vary, so if you don't like your potatoes crispy, you should keep an eye on them while they're baking!
You can enjoy this with any number of sauces. Personally, I prefer ranch. Bet they would taste fantastic with some vinegar.
Do you have any great potato recipes? I'd love to hear about them!
