Olive oil and kosher salt not only flavor the potato skins but also create a nice, tasty and salty crust.
Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
Scrub the potatoes well and dry them really good.
Add olive oil and kosher salt into 2 different baking dishes.
Brush the olive oil on the potato with a basting brush and let any excess oil drip back into the dish. Now roll the potato into the salt, covering the entire potato. Any leftover salt can be saved for a later purpose.
Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 45-60 minutes until a knife pierces easily, meeting little to no resistance.
Cut the potato (not all the way through) lengthwise and then top with butter, sour cream, chopped chives if that’s your thing, or try bacon, ranch and cheddar. Oh my!
There are two keys to turning out good potato croquettes every time. The first, a well-proportioned balance of flour, egg and potato. The second necessity is oil heated sufficiently for deep frying them. The recipe given here ended the diplomatickitchen’s search for one that would turn out excellent croquettes on a regular basis.
This dish is perfect for BBQ season. Because it can be served hot or at room temperature, it travels well.
This recipe serves 4 to 6.
By the way, I like to serve these for the holidays as well!
