Baked Potatoes

A good baked potato is a thing of wonder. Follow our recipe for the perfect baked potatoes – you won't be disappointed.



4 large Agria potatoes, about 250-300 grams each
1 egg white, lightly whisked
sea salt


Preheat the oven to 200˚C.

Scrub the potatoes then dry and prick several times with a fork. Brush all over with egg white and sprinkle with sea salt. There are then two methods of cooking the baked potatoes:

For a soft skin, wrap each potato in foil and place on a baking tray.

For a crispy skin, place uncovered on a baking tray.

Bake for about 1 hour or until tender when pierced with a skewer.
