Recipe: Buttered and Slammed Baked Potatoes

Try out this yummy easy to make potato recipe.


1 large potato, 9 oz
1 tsp olive oil
Sea salt
Small pat of butter


Preheat the oven to 400 F. Scrub the potato and dry thoroughly. Prick in several places with a fork and rub in the olive oil; sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Bake for 1 1/2 hours until the potato feels soft when gently squeezed.

Wrap the potato in a clean towel and slam it down onto a board; alternatively, place the potato on a serving plate with a dish towel on top and hit it with your fist. Both these slamming methods work really well because the force breaks up the potato into fluffy grains and usually causes a natural split.

Drop the butter into the split and sprinkle in a little more salt. Eat immediately.
