Baked potatoes are a delicious and affordable dish for all occasions. You can bake them with bacon, meat, vegetables, cheese, or just spices. But it's not enough to just put them in the oven to make sure they have the perfect structure.

Food blogger Olexii Kriuchkov (kruchkov.food) shared a recipe for baked potatoes on his Instagram page.

According to the recipe, it is advisable to boil the potatoes before baking. This way, they won't fall apart and stick together during the baking process and will have a perfect shape. The same applies to the structure: the potatoes will be soft on the inside and have a golden, crispy crust on the outside.
