The mellow, pleasantly-flavoured potato transforms into a vibrantly-flavoured treat when baked with onion, garlic, seasonings and herbs.

Thyme gives the baked potatoes an irresistibly appetizing aroma, while onions give it a wonderful crunch. A dash of spices like pepper and red chillies raise the spice quotient to just the right level, which will appeal to everybody.

The best part is that this easy-to-make baked dish just uses everyday ingredients, which you will surely find in your kitchen shelf. Make sure you serve this Baked Potato with Onion and Thyme immediately after preparation.

Couple it with a continental main course. You can also try other baked dishes like Baked Purple Yam and Paneer Cake and Baked Ratatouille Pancakes in White Sauce .
