Just back from a very short trip and first thing I was requested was steak. Instead of my typical roasted potatoes to go along, I decided to make baked potatoes instead.
Long time ago I discovered that if I poke the potatoes and spread butter and kosher salt all over the potatoes skin, the potatoes are a bit more tender and testier.
The stuffing was something new for us. Out of sour cream, crème fraiche was the alternate choice. The goat cheese and blue cheese added a nice pungent flavor to it and therefore I did not salt too much the potatoes. We really enjoyed the texture. The steak, simple and yet very flavorful.
