Creamy baked potatoes is one of the most comforting recipes that you need to give your self a pick me up with just milk and a bit of cheese. This recipe is versatile, easy and you literally can’t go wrong with it.

Here are a couple of adjustment points:

  1. We will be using milk instead of cream and will be getting the consistency from the starch of the potatoes.
  2. If you have pre-boiled the potatoes, get a tablespoon of some sort of starch and a tablespoon of water combined together – you will achieve the same result
  3. Depending on how creamy you like potatoes, consider using cream or full-fat milk. I did not have either – I just had 1.5% milk that I usually use for my coffee in the morning.
Creamy baked potatoes

Ingredients

  1. A couple of potatoes, peeled, thoroughly washed and sliced
  2. A small onion sliced thinly – I had red onion. You can use whatever
  3. 1 garlic clove, sliced thinly
  4. 100ml of milk
  5. Olive oil, salt, and pepper
  6. Grana Padano to shred on top

Creamy baked potatoes recipe

  1. Boil the potatoes in salty water. Reserve a bit of the starchy water, like 50-100ml
  2. Strain and put them aside
  3. Start heating the oven to 200
  4. In a deep pan, heat some olive oil and on medium-low heat sweat the onions. We want them translucent and wiggly. Add some salt and pepper to help you through the process.
  5. When almost done, add the garlic clove and mix around for 30 seconds
  6. Add the potatoes once the onions are ready and mix them thoroughly.
  7. Add the starchy water or the starch with water and bring to boil.
  8. At this point add the milk and stir. Bringing it to boil, the whole thing should have thickened a bit.
  9. Add the whole mixture in a casserole and top it off with some shredded grana
  10. Bake it in 200 for 15-20 minutes. As everything is cooked, we are looking for some of the liquid to evaporate and the cheese to melt properly.

As such, my tips are lessons learned from failure, complete mess-ups and whatever experience I have gotten in the past.
