Baked potato with herb butter

Ingredients
  • 4 large potatoes
  • 125g salted butter
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 100g wild herbs, preferably a mix
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees Celsius.
  2. While the oven is preheating, cut up the butter in small cubes and place in a small bowl. Let it soften a bit.
  3. Once the oven has preheated, place the potatoes in a tray and put in the oven. Bake for about 60 minutes or until tender.
  4. While the potatoes are in the oven, chop the herbs finely and grate the lemon zest.
  5. Mix the butter, zest, chopped herbs, salt, and pepper. Make sure all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  6. Place the butter in the fridge until the potatoes are baked.
  7. When the potatoes are cooked, take them out of the oven and cut a cross in the top of each one. Push the sides against each other, so the potato ‘opens’.
  8. Place a spoonful of the herb butter on the potato and serve.
  • Tips

    This dish works well as a side to a grilled piece of meat or fish. The herb butter adds a twist to a variety of dishes, so it’s nice to have on hand.
