Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream

Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream

Here's how to prepare good baked potatoes, and two ideas for toppings.

Herb butter can be easily be made in advance and store in the fridge folded in plastic film, it can also be served with red meat because it look like very much to the "Beurre maitre d'hotel" (butler's butter, usually with parsley only).

Step by step recipe

1 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #1Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

Wash the potatoes, scrubbing them thoroughly under running water. Use large potatoes if possible, like samba or belles de Fontenay (King Edwards are good in Britain).

Place them on a baking tray without wiping dry and put in the oven.
1 hour
2 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #2Meanwhile, finely chop the herbs and put in a bowl with 100 g butter, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, salt and pepper. 5 min.
3 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #3Mix with a fork.
4 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #4Tip the mixture onto a sheet of plastic film and roll up to produce a cylinder. 5 min.
5 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #5Twist the ends of the film firmly, rather like a sweet wrapper, and put to wait in the fridge. 20 min.
6 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #6Another possible topping can be made by mixing the chopped herbs, salt and pepper with 150 g cream. 3 min.
7 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #7After one hour, check if the potatoes are cooked: a knife blade should pass through them easily. If you feel the least resistance, put them back to cook for a further 10 to 15 minutes, then check again. 1 min.
8 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #8Cut the roll of herb butter into thick slices. 5 min.
9 Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : Photo of step #9Split the hot potatoes on a plate and place a spoonful of the cream with herbs, or a slice of herb butter, in the centre. Leave to melt for a minute before serving.

The potatoes can be served simply like this, or with a little green salad and a good vinaigrette dressing, and why not add some slices of Morteau sausage?
3 min.

Remarks

For a lighter option, you can replace the cream with yoghurt, fromage frais, or cottage cheese.
