There are so many ways of cooking different vegetables but I have chosen to share 5 ways of Baking potatoes. So hope someone will like one of them.
5 medium size potatoes sliced
½ cup Cream (sour if preferred)
½ cup milk
8oz grated cheese
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Add chopped parsley
Other seasoning of choice
Lay slices of potatoes over an oven proof dish. Spread all other ingredients over the top and mix. Sprinkle top with Breadcrumbs
Bake at 250deg for approx 1-1/2 hours until cooked and browned. You can add chopped up bacon to mixture if you like and vary seasonings of choice.
Jacket potatoes in normal oven
2 small potatoes per person
Score both sides of potatoes right across (Squares) dab some butter over the top. Place in oven 250deg for approx 1 hour turn as
browning depending on size of potatoes may take longer sprinkle with cheese and put back in oven for a minute to melt cheese.
Oven baked roast potatoes
Peel potatoes or leave in jackets depending on your preference. Cut into quarters Sprinkle with oil and bake for an hour or until soft and browned. Time will depend on size of potatoes. Do this when cooking a roast lamb with other vegetables of your choice.
Score potatoes into squares top and bottom and place dab of butter on top. Microwave on high until soft. You can scoop out centre and mash this with butter and some chopped up bacon mix up and put back into the scooped out potato. Season to taste.
Campfire Baked potatoes
Wrap potatoes in wet newspapers or if you have no newspapers a couple of layers of alfoil will do. Throw directly into the hot coals of the fire. Again cooking time will depend on heat of fire and size of potatoes.
When cooked, cut in half and melt butter over the top. These taste much better if slightly black on outside, gives it that special fire taste. These are really the best part of camp fire cooking.
