The Incredibly Simple Trick To Cut Potato Baking Time In Half
While baked potatoes are a reliable, filling meal, they’re time-consuming to cook, but this surprisingly simple trick can significantly speed up their cook time.
All you have to do to speed up your spuds is cut them in half lengthwise and place them face-down on a greased baking sheet rather than baking them wrapped in foil.
By cutting your potatoes in half, they’re much thinner and heat up faster. Thus, instead of taking 45 minutes to bake, they could be done in just 25 minutes.
Moreover, you’ll be left with a better texture. The baking sheet will leave your potatoes with a nice crispy edge and tender insides, while the potato skin will get nice and crisp.
