Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 8 medium potatoes, washed and halved lengthwise

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

How to Bake a Potato

Pre-heat oven to 350°F and grease a cookie sheet large enough for your potatoes with a little of the olive oil. Brush the cut-side of the potatoes with a mixture of butter and olive oil and lay them, cut side up, on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle with caraway, salt and pepper. Bake for about 40 minutes or until a fork pierces them easily.

Serve with Herbed Quark.

Variation:
Baked Potatoes with Marjoram

This potato variation is a great way to bake a potato for your next potluck.

Instead of caraway, sprinkle each potato with freshly chopped marjoram, 1 teaspoon sunflower seeds and 1 tablespoon shredded Gruyere cheese. Bake as directed. May be served without quark as a side dish. Serve warm or room temperature.
