Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Baking potatoes have low moisture and high starch content. Known as russet or Idaho potatoes, they are characterized by their long, slightly rounded shape and rough brown skin.
  • If you can't find chive-and-onion sour cream potato topper, plain sour cream will do.
