IF YOU think you know how to cook a coat of potatoes perfectly, think again.
Looks like we’ve been doing a lot of things wrong lately… cooking, cleaning and all that.
And now, it looks like we cooked our coat potatoes wrong.
Poppy O’Toole, a Michelin-trained chef to become ‘Potato Queen’ came to TikTok to tell us how we should cook potatoes if we want to get the perfect crispy skin.
Poppy uploaded her video to her TikTok account’poppy“with the caption “A Chef’s Secret to the Perfect Baked Potato”.
She said: “Everybody wants to know how I got such crispy skin and I wish something was cheating on it, but it really isn’t.
“All you need to do is poke a fork in, that will make the moisturizer come out, leaving you with crispy and beautiful skin.
“Then you would mix it with vegetable oil, that would help get that crunch there as well.
“Add a bunch of flaking salt, you want to push the boat out for a baked potato.
“Then I put it in the oven cold and up to 200 degrees Celsius and left it in there for about two and a half hours or so, so it was crispy and delicious.”
There you have it… the secrets to the perfect potato jacket.
Put it in the cold oven (who knows) and let it sit for two and a half hours (which, honestly, seems like a lifetime).
So if you think leaving it in the oven for 40 minutes will do the trick, you’ve heard here before that it’s not enough time for the potatoes to crisp up perfectly.
At the time of writing, Poppy’s video had only been posted to TikTok four days before, but had already amassed a whopping 664k views.
