Simple and Filling! Styled Baked Potato

     I love potatoes, they are very versatile and can be a meal or added to meals. This delicious plate is very simple to duplicate here are the steps:

     1) Get a medium to large potato, rinse under water. Now you have a choice, if you have a microwave button that has potato poke some holes in it wrap it in wax paper and cook.
If you like a stove top method, put potato in a pot, fill with water until water covers it, turn to high when water boils turn to medium high heat, cover pot with lid and keep an eye on it for 20-30 minutes. Poke it with a fork if it goes in easy it’s done if not cook longer and possibly add more water if it has gotten below half empty, and keep an eye on it! Or if you like the oven, turn on medium high around 300 degrees Fahrenheit, poke holes  in the potato, place on baking dish, cover with foil and cook for 20-30 minutes, tests for softness by using a toothpick to push in potato and use oven mitts to prevent burn when putting in and pulling the potato out the oven. If not done continue cooking checking in every 5 minutes. Remember to cut everything off when done.

     2) I used the stove top to cook, so when potato is done, remove pot from the stove, then drain the hot water off it. Allow it to cool 15 minutes. Place the potato in a bowl and take the skin off, be careful it will still be somewhat hot!

3) What do you like on your baked potato? This is your moment to be creative, this can be a individual family project to decorate your potato. I chose to slice Cherry Tomatoes in halves, sprinkle Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Ground Pepper, Onion Powder and Dried Oregano! Also a drizzle of Canola Oil.

4) That’s it time to eat!

     I cook with the intent to keep it simple and filling! So don’t make cooking difficult enjoy it and on to the next blog post.

Later, Crystal
