We all love to eat outdoors and with a steak or lamb or anything else, baked potatoes are most often on the list. Here are a few ideas you might want to try. Who knows, you just might invent a new one you like as well. Here we go:
To maintain a crispy outer potato skin, do not wrap in foil. Brush oil all over the outside of the potatoes and bake in the oven or barbecue, until done.
Let cool a few minutes and then cut in half, but not completely through. Add any of the following to the center of the potato.
- Simple butter, salt and pepper;
- Sour cream, crisp bacon, chopped hard boiled egg;
- sour cream, salsa, finely chopped radish
- Cheddar cheese, grated, cauliflower florets and crisp pancetta
These little ideas will make the meal go from simple to gourmet in a heart beat. Add an ice cold green salad, making sure to add a fruit to it such as diced mango or cantaloupe. perhaps a berry or two. All it takes is a little imagination on your part and you can entertain exceptionally.
