Ingredients

  • 6 or 8 Potatoes
  • A Drawn Butter Sauce, or Sauce a la Hollandaise

Method

To bake Potatoes without meat, wash the Potatoes well, set them in the oven in their skins, and in about an hour open the oven slightly, and take the Potatoes out, one by one, in a cloth, and press lightly, to see if they are quite soft to the touch. Then either bring to the table in their jackets, as many prefer, or pare and serve with a Sauce a la Hollandaise or Drawn Butter Sauce, or with daubes, meats, sautes, etc., or any fish or meats with gravies.
