    Default Potato bake, powdery spuds.

    Hi All!

    Made a potato bake last night, something I've done on several occasions. The sauce was delicious and I was happy with that (made from scratch).

    But, the potatoes tasted powdery?

    The only thing I can guess is that I purchased the wrong potatoes.

    So what potatoes do you use for a potato bake?

    I've never picked a certain variety, just what ever is there and this is the first time I've had this issue.

    Thanks!

    I usually just buy the normal ones that u scrub and peel. but i find the trick is to slice them extremely thinly

    Thanks so much everyone

    They were cut thinly and cooked perfectly through but just tasted powdery and ick!

    I'll check out the Desiree and the brushed.

    In not sure of any fruit and veg markets around just Coles and Woolies near us.

    Hey lovely I made potato bake the other night and used Carisma potatoes from Coles (they sell them in the bags). They didn't taste powdery at all and a few of the slices were a bit thick
