Ingredients for 1 potato:

  • large potatoes about 7 oz (200 g) each
  • ¾ oz (20 g) soft butter
  • 1 oz (20–40 g) grated hard cheese
  • salt to taste


  1. Wash the unpeeled potatoes thoroughly with a brush, pat dry with a paper towel, and wrap in tin foil. Bake at 400 °F (200 °C) for one and a half hours. Check readiness with a toothpick: it should poke the tuber through easily.
  2. Cut the potatoes in foil along. Salt the potato halves. Gently separate the pulp from the skin with a spoon and use a fork to mash it with butter and grated cheese.

Making baked potato with toppings turned out so simple, but the dish looks impressive, don’t you agree?


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
