Baked potatoes are making a comeback! So Linnéa Seidel from linneasskafferi.se has created a baked potato dish using creamy Snøfrisk® Chanterelle and chestnut mushrooms. Fresh, delicious and awesomely simple!
Baked potatoes can be cooked in a variety of ways:
In the oven: Prick with a fork to pierce the skin, place the potatoes on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 225 °C for around 1 to 1 ½ hours. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the potatoes. Check with a skewer to make sure the potatoes are fully cooked.
In the microwave: Prick with a fork to pierce the skin. Place the potatoes in a dish or on a plate. Bake the potatoes on full power for 5 minutes at a time. (I cooked mine for around 15 minutes in total.) Check with a skewer to make sure the potatoes are fully cooked.
On a barbecue: Prick with a fork to pierce the skin. Wrap the potatoes in foil. Bake on the barbecue for around 1 hour. Turn over after half an hour. Remove the potatoes from the foil and leave to cook unwrapped on the barbecue for the last 10 minutes to achieve a crispy skin.
In the oven and microwave: Prick with a fork to pierce the skin, place the potatoes on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 225 °C until they start to look baked (around 20 minutes). Then finish them off in the microwave. Cook for 5 minutes at a time. This is the perfect method if you don’t have time to wait for them to cook for 1 ½ hours in the oven.
Thinly slice the mushrooms. Heat a dry frying pan and fry the mushrooms over a medium heat until they begin to release their liquid. Peel and finely chop the onion. Add the onion and some butter to the pan of mushrooms. Fry until the mushrooms are golden and the onion is soft. Season with salt. Allow to cool.
Combine the fried mushrooms with the Snøfrisk®. Save a few mushrooms for a garnish.
Add lemon and cress to taste to the cream cheese mixture.
Cut a cross in the top of each cooked potato. Add the cream cheese mixture to the potatoes, top with the remaining fried mushrooms, onion and fresh cress.
Prepare a large salad to serve with them.
