Some time ago, I found a photo of the most delicious looking baked potato on themetapicture.com (click for original photo). I figured, how hard can it be? Well — my potatoes came out NOTHING like it. I bet the Pinterest photo is actually really delicious, but I thought my potato came out pretty tasty as well. And as you can see, I don’t think the photo is necessarily cringe-worthy like so many other ‘Nailed it’ attempts!
Basically, I sliced one large, golden yukon potato and stuffed the slices with even thinner slices of butter, cheese and sea salt. I baked the potato in the oven for about half an hour at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. I would probably suggest actually “pre-baking” the potato a little bit first, then slicing it, adding the fixtures, and then baking again for maybe an additional 15 – 20 minutes. My initial potato came out a bit raw.
I used shredded Emmentaler cheese, so you may get a more gooey potato if you use a different cheese. Some may choose to drizzle the potato in olive oil, but I totally embraced the butter and you don’t really need the oil after that. I embraced the butter. EMBRACE the BUTTER.
