    I can't find shit on Google about a cooked potato :squint:

    These things take an hour to cook, I'd like to get as many as I can at once

    I'm assuming this is just a guess? I don't want to get sick from this stuff. I don't know how potatoes are when it comes to bacteria

    Oven at 400. It took more like 45 minutes. Each one is about 1/2 lbs, only made 4 this time around. Poked them with a fork before sticking them in there

    I think this would work fine if I was only making 1 or 2, but it would take forever making higher quanities. Even with my past experience with baked potatoes, it typically took 10-12 minutes for 1 potato

    1. Don't poke them with a fork. You let all the juice out of them and they get dry.

    2. Peel and cube them into med-large size cubes.

    3. Lightly toss them in olive oil, salt and pepper

    4. lay them on a sheet pan or baking dish and roast at 375 for about 20-30 minutes or until soft.

    5. Eat. What you don't eat will stay good for at least a week in an airtight container in the fridge plus it's easier to portion out only what you want to eat instead of choking down a whole one.

    When they start to have a "rubbery" texture to them then they are drying out and starting to go bad. They last longer than regular potatoes due to the lack of starch.

    I eat 2 a day, 3 a day on my higher carb days. It doesn't take a "few' minutes to cook in the microwave. I'm assuming if 1 takes 10-12 minutes, cooking 3 would probably take 25-30

    one of my favorite recipes is doing like tex chef said, but toss it up in a cold salad w/ leeks or Green onions, toasted flax seeds, dried granberries/currents/something, and a bit of olive oil.

    delish.

    maybe you can freeze one of the cooked ones and thaw it in the fridge overnight and see how that goes
