Baking the perfect potato

Turn the oven onto 180 degrees. Rinse and scrub the potato under cold running water. Dry the potato with a tea towel.

Pierce the potato with a fork three times on each side and score a cross in the top of the potato. This allows the steam to escape and prevents the potatoes from exploding. Bake for around 1 hr, till cooked through.

This method will produce a crispy skinned baked potato. If you prefer a soft skinned roast potato, rub with olive oil all over the skin, and then you can sprinkle with sea salt too! Bake for around 1 hour.

Yum, then you can add your topping as you like, coleslaw, sundried tomatoes, olive oil, cheese, the variations are endless.
