Potatoes should be boiled for 10-12 minutes before baking or roasting. There are times when potatoes are prepared already cut and pre-boiled in the packaging. These potatoes should be cooked for two minutes in a microwave before baking or roasting.
How long to bake potatoes
If baking whole potatoes, bake for 40 to 60 minutes. For smaller cut pieces, 25-35 minutes is a good time for baking or until crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Parboiled potatoes (or microwaved potatoes) will take lesser time to bake in the oven or air fryer. 20 minutes is a good time to start checking for doneness.

Easy Potato Side Dishes
- potato masher or potato ricer
- 2.2 pounds (1kg) potatoes peeled and cut into big chunks
- 4 cups curly kale
- 50 g unsalted butter cut into cubes
- ½ tablespoon Salt to boil the potatoes or as needed
- Salt and Black Pepper to taste
- ½ cup heavy cream
- ½ cup onions finely chopped
- 2 tablespoon chives chopped and more to serve
- Peel and cut the potatoes if desired into big chunks, I kept mine whole since they were pretty much the same size.
- Boil the potatoes: Add the potatoes to a large pot of salted water making sure the potatoes are fully submerged. Bring to a boil until fork tender or when the knife does not resist when poked. Drain and set aside
- Saute kale: While the potato is boiling, heat up the butter until melted on medium heat, add the chopped onions, kale and chopped chives and cook until kale is tender and the onions soft and translucent.
- Warm the cream briefly in the microwave then add to the drained potatoes. Using a potato masher, potato ricer or an electric potato ricer, mash the potatoes until smooth and lump-free
- Add the sauteed kale and onions to the mashed potatoes and mix to combine. Taste and adjust salt and black pepper to preference. Transfer to a serving bowl, make some swirl on top of the mash for a more appealing look then top it with some melted butter and chopped chives. Serve and enjoy!!!
- Make sure the potatoes are cut into equal sizes, that way they cook evenly. Also, start off cooking the potatoes in cold water, this also ensures even cooking.
- Pulse the sauteed kale and onions before adding it to the mash if you want.
- Make sure the spuds are cooked through before mashing
- Avoid using a mixer, food processor or blender for mashing the potatoes as it can make it gluey.
