Baked potato recipe
- 5 potatoes
- 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of dry oregano
- 1 teaspoon of common or smoked paprika
- 5 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper as desired
Step by step how to prepare
- Wash well and cut the potatoes into the shape you prefer. In our case, we are going to cut them the long way, getting 6 pieces from each potato.
- While cutting the potatoes, put the already cut ones into a bowl with water, thus you can prevent them from changing color.
- Then, wash them again and dry them using cooking paper or a towel so they don’t keep liquid inside, and get them crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
- Once they’re dried, prepare the simple seasoning we’re going to use in this recipe by putting the garlic powder, the oregano, the pepper, the paprika and the salt into a bowl.
- The next step is to add the oil over the potatoes so all of them get covered by it as well as the mixed species.
- Place the potatoes on a tray and take it into the oven which must be pre-heated to 200°C and bake for 10 minutes.
- Open the oven, turn over the potatoes so they can bake on both sides and bake them again for another 10 minutes.
- And in this way you’ll get these baked potatoes ready. Serve them hot accompanied by any other dish or with a simple dressing.
