Oven-baked potato in foil

Oven-baked foil potatoes

Potato baked in foil in the oven is unexpectedly delicious for many, and perhaps the simplest recipe of all. This potato is often served as a side dish. But if you don't necessarily need meat for lunch or dinner, you can have a full meal with it, without harming your figure. Baked potato in foil retains its natural taste and aroma. And then it's all about the spices. They are often added directly to the foil with the potato before baking. However, I prefer to separately prepare a delicious sauce and complement the already cooked potato with it.

Prepare all the necessary ingredients for foil-baked potatoes in the oven. Thoroughly wash the potatoes under running water and remove any remaining soil. It is preferable to choose medium-sized potatoes so that they bake well. And of course, young potatoes will be more tender. It is also important for the potatoes to be of the same size, so that they bake evenly.

Prepare square sheets of foil. If the foil is very thin, it is better to take several sheets and fold them together to prevent them from tearing. The square should be large enough to completely wrap the potatoes.

Fold all the wrapped potatoes into a baking dish. To prevent the potatoes from sticking, add a little water directly into the dish. The process of cooking will be faster due to evaporation. Place the dish with the foil-wrapped potatoes in the oven preheated to 250 degrees Celsius for 1 hour. Check the readiness by piercing with a knife or fork. If the knife goes in easily, it means the potatoes are ready.

Prepare the sauce for the potatoes. Finely chop the chili pepper and garlic. If you don't like it spicy, you can omit the pepper. In that case, add your favorite spices or herbs. For example, paprika, thyme, rosemary or basil for aroma and flavor.

Place the herbs, chili pepper, garlic and sour cream in a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper. For the sauce for baked potatoes, I recommend using sour cream with medium fat content, approximately 15-20%. This type of sour cream is usually thicker and richer. The sauce will have a creamy texture and a rich taste. However, if you prefer a lighter version, you can use 10% sour cream.

After baking, carefully open the foil to avoid steam burns and let the potatoes cool slightly before serving. Those who like a golden crust on their dishes can open the foil 15 minutes before the end of cooking to allow the potatoes to brown. I prefer a healthier option - without the crust.

Oven-baked foil potatoes

Take the sauce out of the refrigerator and place it on top of the potato. Garnish with herbs and serve as a separate dish or as a side. Foil-wrapped potatoes go well not only with sour cream sauce. You can make a sauce based on yogurt, mustard, ketchup or mayonnaise. In any case, it will be delicious. If you like bacon, add a little chopped bacon to each potato. It will add a salty taste. The foil-wrapped potatoes in the oven are ready. Enjoy your meal.
