These baked potatoes were my specialty in grades 6 & 7. This is actually the first recipe I wrote down in my very first cooking notebook from the ‘90s. And trust me when I say it’s a very quick and easy recipe… if an 11-year-old can make this, anyone can
Time: 70 min, Prep: 20 min. Cook: 50min.
- 1 kg potatoes
- 3 eggs
- 60 g butter
- 500 g sour cream
- 200 g Cheddar cheese, grated
- Salt, pepper
Wash potatoes thoroughly, put them in a pot with water and salt and boil them for about 30 minutes or until soft. Drain water, let potatoes cool, peel and slice them.
Grease a baking pan with the butter. I used a 8’’ square glass pan (oven safe).
Mix the beaten eggs, sour cream, salt, pepper and half of the grated cheese.
Arrange half of the sliced potatoes in the pan and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
Add half of the egg, sour cream and cheese mixture. Add another layer of sliced potatoes and again season with salt and pepper.
Pour the remaining mixture over the potatoes and sprinkle the remaining grated cheese on top.
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Place in the oven and let it bake for 20 minutes or until top of shredded cheese is golden.
