Baked Potato in a Jar

Recently I tried baked potatoes in a jar for the first time and I really liked this hearty recipe. So I decided to share it with you.

The cooking method is very unusual: the potatoes don’t burn or boil over. The dish turns out filling and delectable. And if you add some bacon, you’ll definitely lick your fingers!

Baked Potato in a Jar

  1. Prepare the potatoes. Peel them first and then dice. You can cut them into medium-sized pieces with a vegetable cutter. Choose the size of the potatoes according to the time you can spend on cooking. © Depositphotos
  2. Pour the potatoes into a large bowl. Add salt, pepper, vegetable oil, and mix thoroughly. Then cut the onions into circles, add to the bowl and mix again. The onions add juiciness to the potatoes. © Depositphotos
  3. Now prepare the bacon. Cut it into pieces. Add to the bowl and thoroughly mix. © Depositphotos
  4. Take dry glass jars. Grease each one with butter. This is to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the walls. Fill each jar with the potatoes. Then take the foil and wrap the top of the jars. Put the jars in the oven and heat it to 350 °F (180 °C). Cook for about 50 minutes. Or even a little more so that the potatoes become juicier and more appetizing. © Depositphotos

When the potatoes are ready, don’t take them out of the oven right away. After all, the jars can explode. Wait a couple of minutes for the oven to cool down. The cooking method is very convenient. Did you like this baked potato in a jar recipe?


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!
