Baking a Potato

Baking a Potato

  • Heat oven to 220C/ 200C fan/gas 7. Rub a little oil and seasoning (salt and pepper) over the potatoes, then bake on a baking sheet for 25 mins.
  • Turn down the oven to 190C/ 170C fan/gas 5 and bake for 1 hr-1 hr 15 mins more until the skin becomes crisp and golden.
  • For a quicker option, prick a potato with a fork. Wrap in a sheet of kitchen paper and microwave for 8-10 mins until soft inside.
