Baked Potatoes

Perfect for those days when the sun is out, but you don't have any elaborate cooking plans. You can still put the sun to work for you; simply place potatoes in the oven and go on with your day.

This recipe is based on potatoes weighing 1 lb. each—the really choice bakers. For smaller potatoes, the cooking will be faster.

1. Wash and dry the potatoes. Prick each potato a few times.

2. Place 2 large baking potatoes per Sport cooking pot. Do not add liquid.

3. Put lid on the black cooking pot and place in the Sport solar oven. Clip the clear lid to the oven. Face the oven into the sun and then rotate it clockwise 30 degrees. Relax and do other things. The potatoes can be left unopened the entire cooking time. Check in 3-4 hours. If the potatoes are not done, face the oven toward the sun plus 30 degrees clockwise and continue cooking.

4. To serve, open the potatoes and top however you choose.  

In the picture above, we used black beans, salsa, cheddar cheese and guacamole to turn a baked potato in to a hearty meal.

Cooking time - up to 6 hours.
