Our Favourite Potato Recipes
Baking a potato is one of the most simple and satisfying meals. We’ve got the low down on how to make the best baked potato right here or see below for some of our favey fave ‘tato recipes out the oven.
Baked Potatoes with Creamed Mushrooms, Black Garlic and Crispy Bacon
Popping your potato in the oven and slathering it with butter, salt and pepper is the usual baked potato method but this recipe will change the way you look and baked potatoes forever. Creamed mushrooms, crispy bacon and black garlic transform your spud to spudtacular.
Hasselback Potatoes with Lemon and Thyme
Hasselback potatoes are always a winner in our books. This recipe yields crispy golden potatoes that are fried in olive oil, butter and thyme before being popped in the oven to roast with garlic and lemon zest. Mmmm.
Mustard Cream Vertical Potato Bake
What would life be without potato bake? As a kid growing up, any night with potato bake was a night worth celebrating and keeping tantrums at bay (well done, Mom). This version swaps classic horizontal spud slices for vertical ones and adds in mustard for an extra creamy punch.
This fancy version of a potato bake uses a gratin which is basically a French term for browned breadcrumbs, cheese or butter on top of a dish that’s been baked. This recipe adds nutmeg and chives to the cream and is topped with brown, bubbling Parmesan.
