Baked Potato


4 large potatoes
2 Tbsp butter
1 medium white onion, minced
1 cup grated cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste

How to cook:

1. Boil potatoes. When cooked set aside and let it cool a bit.

2. On a frying pan, melt the butter and then add the chopped onions. Cook for about 3 minutes. Make sure that the butter doesn't turn into oil (you'd know if it smells like popcorn already).

3. Halve the potatoes.

4. Create a boat by scooping out the potato.

Here's how it should look -

5. Mash the potatoes.

6. Add the cooked butter and onion mixture and sour cream. Then add about half of the cheese and put salt and pepper to taste.

7. Using a spoon fill up the potato boat and then sprinkle some cheese on top.

8. Pre-heat the oven at 180'C for about 8-10 minutes and then bake the potatoes for about 10 minutes.

 *You can also opt to bake the potatoes instead of boiling them. It takes longer though so I just boil them to shorten the cooking time.
