Baked Dressed Potato Halves




I love potatoes cooked in any way...boiled, baked, fried or mashed...name it and I will gobble it down :)) Yup I am a big fan of potato * wink but becoz of its starch content, I cook them once in a blue moon. For this once, I boiled it till cook, cut into halve , scoop out the potato from its jacket and mixed with mustard & dill sauce, chopped parsley and rosemary, grated cheddar cheese, black pepper , cajun powder, olive oil and sea salt. Fill the potato mixture into the jackets and topped with more cheddar cheese. Drizzle more olive oil on to the filled up potatoes and baked in a preheated oven at 200 C for 25 minutes or till golden brown. Simple yet delicious.



scoop the potato out of its jacket and mixed it with
mustard & dill sauceblack pepper, chopped parsley
& rosemary, cajun powder ,olive oil
and sea salt and let it stand for 15 minutes
till the ingredients have infused into the potato


cajun gives spiciness and cheddar cheese adds flavor
to the potato fill back the potato mixture into its jackets


topped with cheddar cheese and drizzle lots of olive oil ...mmmmm



mmm...this is one favourite style of baked potato...well dressed :p
