Seasoning potato

In this article, you will find many ways how to season and what you can use to get your best potato seasoning dish.

Salty potato

Some experts advise you to salt potatoes at the end of the cooking process. This is better for the taste and the crispy texture. 

Others mention that salting the water and putting the potato inside is a good idea for the best taste. Could you try them and give us your feedback?

Spice lovers!

In this part of the article, I will introduce many seasoning types.

What is a seasoning made of?
The ingredients are salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, white pepper, rosemary, and thyme. The Italian seasoning for potatoes is very easy. It is a mixture made of oregano and basil. And if you have thyme, add a little to get a fantastic potato taste!

Baked potatoes

You can bake potatoes in many ways. Here are the best ways to get your desired potato taste. 

First, if you are in a hurry and insist on eating a healthy potato dish, soak your potatoes in salty water for 2 or 3 hours. You can also prepare them before, like the night or early morning. The easy way is to put the potato in the air fryer for 45 minutes at 200C° with a small amount of oil and enjoy your crispy potato taste. If you like herbs, you can also add them after cooking or while cooking, but not at the beginning of the process because the herbs may be burnt in the fryer. 

The second way is easy also. You need to season your potatoes after heating your oven well. Put the potato in the oven at 200C° for 30 minutes. One piece of advice from me to you, if you have a fan in your oven, use it to get a better result and the crispy potato you want.

The third is precisely boiling the potato for 10 minutes before bringing it to the oven. This will make it done faster. Some people prefer to put the potato in the freezer for another 10 minutes and then into the range. The oven must be on 200C°, and 15 minutes is okay for your potato to be made.

Mashed potato

Mashed potatoes are one of the most classic and beloved side dishes, and for good reason! Whether youre making a comforting Sunday dinner or a dish to pass around at a potluck, mashed potatoes are a staple. But did you know that there are a few easy tips and tricks to make the perfect mashed potatoes? Here are our favorites:

  1. Start with boiling your potatoes. The key to light and fluffy mashed potatoes is to boil them in salted water until theyre fork-tender. If you boil for too long, the potatoes can become mushy and gluey, making them hard to mash.
  2. Add the right ingredients. Once your potatoes are cooked, add butter and cream (or a dairy-free alternative). The ratio of butter to cream should be 2:1. You can also add seasonings, like garlic or chives, if desired.
  3. Mash with a potato masher. For the fluffiest potatoes, you should mash them with a potato masher instead of a blender or food processor. This will ensure that the potatoes dont get too gummy or gluey.
  4. Let them rest. Once the potatoes are mashed, let them sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the texture to set.

These simple tips will help you make the perfect mashed potatoes every time. Whether youre making a classic comfort food dish or a unique recipe, mashed potatoes are a great addition to your meal. So dont be afraid to get creative and experiment with different ingredients and flavor combinations.
