There are some weird-looking vegetables out there, but don’t let that scare you away from the kitchen. Cook this dragon potato and enjoy him with melted butter and a little maple syrup!
Not sure how to properly bake a potato? We’ll give you all the details here, whether you’re cooking bizarre shaped sweet potatoes or plain old white potatoes.
“Bake potatoes in the oven, crock pot, or if you must, in the microwave. I like to use my crock pot for potatoes, but Mom prefers the old-fashioned way. She bakes them in the oven without foil for a crispy skin, her favorite part. However, both of us cheat sometimes and use the microwave.” ~ Rebecca
