Ingredients of Baked Potatoes with Cream Cheese Dressing
Oven temp: 400 F/204 C
4 large potatoes
Salt according to taste
Powdered black pepper to taste
Aluminium foil-big enough to wrap each potato completely
For the Cream Cheese Dressing:
3 cups hung curd
1 tsp salt or to taste
1/8 tsp powdered black pepper
1 Tbsp celery-chopped or 1 tsp celery salt
How to Make Baked Potatoes with Cream Cheese Dressing
1.Wash and scrub potatoes and wipe them dry.
2.Rub potatoes with salt and pepper and prick with a fork at two or three places, so that they do not burst while baking.
3.Place each potato in the centre of a square of aluminium foil and wrap tightly, covering the potato completely.
4.Place in a pre-heated oven and bake for an hour.
5.Remove from oven and check for doneness (should be able to dent them with the thumb and forefinger, without much pressure).
6.In case not done, bake for some more time.
7.Before serving, bake potatoes uncovered for about 5 minutes so that the covering becomes a bit crisp.
8.Remove from oven and make a cross cut, like a plus sign, in the centre of one flat side of the potato, place the forefinger and thumbs of both hands in each corner formed by the plus sign, and press. A place is thus created for the dressing.
