PERFECT BAKED POTATO RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

Four russet potatoes are included. 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil, season with kosher salt

STEP-1

Preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

INSTRUCTION

STEP-2

Pat potatoes thoroughly after washing them with cold water and a stiff brush. Poke 8–12 deep holes throughout the surface of each potato with a utensil to allow moisture to escape during cooking.

STEP-3

Lightly coat potatoes with oil and salt in a large basin. Then, place the potatoes immediately on the middle rack of the oven (or on a baking sheet lined with foil).

Step-4

Bake until the flesh is tender and the skin is crusty, about one hour.

Step-5

Once the potatoes are cold enough to handle, set them aside. Using a fork, make a dotted line from one end to the other of each potato, and then squeeze the ends of the potatoes toward one another to split them open. Serve accompanied by desired garnishes.
