If there's a single dish capable of instantly comforting a person and alleviating all the world weariness accumulated from that #DailyHustle, it's a baked potato. Luckily for you, we convinced MUNCHIES host and noted spud whisperer Matty Matheson to share his ultimate recipe for baked potatoes, and he hit it out of the park with this one.

Matty's Power Potatoes are the perfect thing to get you through some truly tough times, whether that be the dead of winter or a particularly harrowing Twitter roasting over a photo of some shitty-looking barbecue. And, as Matty says, "If you had a bad day at the office, you come home and make fucking baked potatoes."

Power Potatoes are loaded to the brim with freshly made lardons, "a sizable amount of fucking butter," grated Cheddar cheese, mascarpone, bocconcini, broccoli, and a whole bunch of thinly sliced scallions.

The result of all your arduous potato labor? Well, that's the power.

Matty guarantees that after eating one of these bad boys, you and your partner of choice "are going to be fucking tonight. You guys are going to be together, fucking. Or napping. It's either or." Hell, maybe both!

And when your head hits the pillow, we bet you'll be dreaming of more of Matty's Power Potatoes.
