Ingredients:

  1. Baby potatoes: 450g
  2. Oil (non-expensive olive oil or vegetable oil or melted butter): a little bit to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the pan
  3. Spring onion: 1 (you can use parsley, rosemary or other herbs)
  4. Seasoning:  some salt, pepper, chilli powder, cumin seed powder (or you can use BBQ sauce or any other sauce to your taste)

Steps:

  1. Wash the potatoes, put in boiling water for 10 minutes until you can easily stick a fork into themIMG_9348_副本

  3. Put a piece of aluminium foil on an oven tray, grease it with a little bit of oil

  4. Place potatoes onto the tray, use your palm to gently press them so that they crack a little bit. This makes it faster for them to be fully cooked. Be sure not to press too hard.IMG_9355_副本
  5. Add seasoning, bake in oven (preheated to 490F), wait about 10 minIMG_9357_副本
  6. Take it out, add herbs (and cheese if you want to), put it back in the oven for another 3 min, and… done!
