If you’ve got a programmable oven, baked potatoes are a great weekday meal which you can prepare in advance. It’s cheap and nutritious, and if you avoid calorie-rich toppings such as cheese and cream and go for a lighter filling, it’s not too calorietastic.
2 kg large, floury potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
rub the potatoes liberally in oil, salt generously, put a few holes in the skin
cook in an 180° oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes
- Notice the pie tart I’m cooking the potatoes in. Leaves the oven clean and I can put the dish in the dishwasher.
- You can prepare the toppings beforehand.
Here some toppings you might consider: grated cheese, salmon, cottage cheese, quark and chives.
