Baked potatoes, or potatoes in their jackets, are an absolutely delicious dish that can be served with a variety of other foods.
Yes – this is hardly a recipe but it may be useful to those with little cooking experience.

Wash the potatoes well and then prick all over with a fork. Coat them with the oil and salt – messy but fun! Bake in the oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes at 180C/360F. Alternatively you can cook these in a microwave in minutes (follow manufacturers guidelines for timing). Baked potatoes are nice served with a green salad and your choice of topping or filling.
