Step by step recipe

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.

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.Baked potoatoes with herb butter or cream  : etape 25

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?

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