1 potato, 2 recipes

One of the easiest things to make for dinner when you really don’t feel much like cooking is a baked potato. It’s super easy and requires very little thought (especially if you remember to use your oven timer). Potatoes often get a bad rap because they’re high in carbs, but they’re actually full of nutrients and a really good source of potassium. I bake my potato at 350°F for about an hour, until softened. I let it rest for about 5 minutes and then I cut it in half. I scoop out about 2/3 of the inside and transfer it to a bowl and refrigerate it until breakfast. For me, the best part of the potato is the skin so by removing much of the inside, I’m sure to get the outer skin in every bite. Then I fix my potato to suit my mood (butter, sour cream etc.) and of course, salt and pepper. The next day, I add a little butter and cream to the potatoes and slightly mash them up (you can mash entirely and/or make as creamy as you like) and then sauté them in a non-stick pan until golden brown and crunchy on the outside (the crunch is the best part). Then I top them with a fried or poached egg for a quick and hearty breakfast. One potato, two delicious ways to enjoy it.
