Punched Potatoes



Ingredients (1-2 servings)

  • 6 Small white potatoes 
  • Salt, portuguese olive oil q.s.

Instructions (Time: 45 minutes)

Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Wash the potatoes and scrub them if necessary.


Pick an oven appropriate pan and generously sprinkle the potatoes with salt. Don’t be shy.


Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. To check that they are cooked pierce the potatoes with a knife. They should be soft and the skin should be loose.


Remove them from the oven and rub off the salt in the skin with your hands.


On a cutting board punch each potato once or twice. The potatoes should remain in one piece.


Drizzle with olive oil to taste. The potatoes will absorb part of the olive oil and there should be olive oil in the plate. And if you feel like eating something even more decadent, heat the olive oil with some garlic and drizzle it over the potatoes. YUM!
