Remember the gift list given by 10-year-old MC to us last Christmas? Well, it was time to collect; to tick-off one from the list.
She decided to cook something for us; her little sister IC volunteered to help her. As usual, they went through all the rituals before cooking: no jewelries, aprons needed, hands washed, hair tied, dish cloths ready, ingredients ready, and since the kitchen counter is too high for them -- stable mini chairs.
The menu? Their specialty and their all-time favorite: Crispy Baked Potatoes.
They learned this recipe from school. This is simple and is always a hit with kids and adults, too.
Ingredients for Crispy Baked Potatoes (4 Servings):
7-8 pcs. potatoes , cubed (700 g)
2 tbsp olive oil (any cooking oil)
1 tsp salt
a handful of chopped dill or chives
Put the oil, salt and dill/chives in a big mixing bowl. Mix well. Add the chopped potatoes. Again, mix well.
Cover the baking tray with a baking paper. Pour the potato mixture evenly on the baking tray. On a pre-heated oven (200 degrees), bake for 20 minutes.
The Crispy Baked Potatoes is served with freshly baked pretzel sticks with butter and cream cheese.
