- Don’t put too many potatoes in one go, otherwise, they won’t cook properly, and you won’t get that crispy crust.
- Rotate the potatoes halfway through the cooking time, so they cook evenly.
- You can test doneness by pricking it with a fork. Your potatoes are already done when you can easily pierce it without effort.
- Homemade Recipes recommends russet potatoes because they’re rich in starch and absorb all the flavors from your toppings like a sponge.
- For the potatoes to easily absorb all the flavors, add the toppings while they’re still piping hot.
