Fast & easy recipes for lazy people like myself.

Baked potatoes with salt (Russian-style)


  • Potatoes – the larger golden or pink ones are best
  • Salt
  • Butter (for flavour) or margarine (for weight loss, if you’re into that)


  1. Cut potatoes in half and place onto tray
  2. Sprinkle salt onto each wet potato half
  3. Rub halves together
  4. Bake on 200 degrees for approximately 25 minutes (I use a strong fan-forced oven, so please adjust accordingly)
  5. Once the tops have risen and potato is still hot, cut a slither in the middle and place a little bit of butter into each potato half.

Recipe note: I remember eating this as a child and making these as a family. It’s amazing how some of the best potato recipes are just so simple.
