Recipe puffed potatoes

Potatoes popping in the oven are very simple. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Take a few medium-sized potatoes, preferably of a floral variety as a bite or doer. Scrub the peel thoroughly clean and prick round holes in the potato with a fork.

Then, loosely pick up each potato with aluminum foil and let it cook in the middle of the oven. That takes about 40 to 50 minutes. If you prick the potato with a fork and it comes out easily, it is done. You only have to cut it open and eat it with a sauce of your choice!
