Baked Potato With Bacon Recipe

This baked potato with bacon dish, is a very basic recipe that combines two wonderful foods together. Serve with sour cream and dress it up with colorful argula for a bit of a nippy flavor.


rock salt
4 medium russet potatoes, washed and dried
2 teaspoons olive oil
8 slices bacon
sour cream
handful of arugula

(Serves 4)


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil and sprinkle over a layer of salt. This will make the potato skins crispy.

With clean hands, rub the potatoes with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

Bake potatoes in the preheated oven until cooked through and soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. About for 1 hour.

10 minutes before the potatoes are done, fry the bacon in a large skillet set over medium heat, until crispy.

Once potatoes are cooked, transfer them to serving plates.

Top each potato with a dollop of sour cream, 2 slices of bacon, and a few leaves of arugula.

Serve hot.
