  • You can add oregano and breadcrumbs.
  • I didn’t add them but the original recipe does.
  • Bake the potatoes in a hot oven at 200°C (392°F) with the grill on for 20 minutes.
  • In the original method cut the potatoes raw, season them as I have shown, pour the vegetable broth on the bottom of the pan and bake for at least 45-50 minutes at 200°C (392°F).
