  • Russet potatoes 4 large
  • Olive oil 1/4 cup
  • Salt 1 teaspoon
  • Ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon

  • Ground coriander seed 1 1/2 teaspoon


Kids: Add 1/2 ground black pepper
Adults: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Adults: Bake the potatoes for 1 hour. Remove the potatoes from the oven, but keep the oven on.
Adults: Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, and let them cool for 10 minutes.
Together: Scoop out most of the potato flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of flesh against the potato skin (you can save the potato flesh for another use, like mashed potatoes)
Adults: Cut each potato half crosswise into 3 pieces.
Kids: Place the olive oil in a small cup. Dip each potato piece into the olive oil and place it on a baking sheet.
