Embrace the comfort of a warm, cozy night indoors with Starry Night Baked Potatoes. The oven’s warm embrace transforms humble spuds into a celestial symphony of creamy interiors and crispy, golden skins, finished with a dusting of sharp cheddar that melts like constellations in the night sky.

Ingredients 4 large russet potatoes 2 tablespoons of olive oil Salt to taste 1 cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Scrub the potatoes clean and dry them well.

Rub the potatoes with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and place directly on the oven rack. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the skin is crisp and the interior is soft.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and cut a cross on top. Push the ends towards the middle to open them up. Sprinkle the cheese inside, letting it melt from the potato’s residual heat.

Season with freshly ground black pepper before serving.

Starry Night Baked Potatoes are like a warm blanket on a chilly night. The combination of the tender potato, the slight crunch of the skin, and the melting cheese brings comfort to your palate and soul. It’s a simple dish that reminds us of the beauty and tranquility of starry nights and the pleasure of simple comforts.
