Awesome says it all! How can something this simple turn out such great baked potatoes?The potatoes were fluffy inside and altough there was salt on the skin it did not make the potatoe taste salty. I served these with a boiled ham, sweetpotatoes with apples and asparagus - oven roasted. All agreed that the potatoes are 5 star all the way Thanks wildhorse I'll be doing my baked potatyoes like this from now on 8 Oct added comments I just love the way these potatoes turn out. I just had to say thanks again for this simple but excellent way of roasting poyatoes

Yum! These potatoes were so good. They came out with a crispy skin & fluffy on the inside. This is the way I'll be making baked potatoes from now on. Thanks.

Wow! These tasted just like the potatoes from the Keg Restaurant - amazing! They were very easy to make and very tasty - this is how I will make my baked potatoes from now on.

These were tasty baked potatoes, but I didn't find them that different than a 'regular' potato baked at high heat. They were slightly too salty for me but I used an unsalted butter inside and it sort of balanced out. I really liked the texture of the potato- far superior to one prepared in the microwave. Thanks!

I pretty much echo the other reviewers here, these were awesome baked potatoes!! Crispy skins and fluffy inside. I too did as Pamela In Winnipeg and prepared Baked Potato Topping "Baked Potato Topping" by lucy k. to spread on top of these and they were sooooo YUMMY! I do eat the skins and "may" follow your advice for rubbing some of the salt off before eating, as I found the odd bite to be just 'slightly' too salty, not that bad really, so I would not rub it all off. Thanks so much for these, they will be a keeper around here!! Excellent on their own I'm sure or give them a try with Lucy k.'s topping, we really enjoyed them together!!

I loved these potatoes! My kids don't eat the skins, so I cut off the skins with some potato left and made them into potato skins! The best potato skins I've ever made! Thank you!!!

I thought these where great and crunchy moist inside! Where did you come up with these! Better than the ones that we've been eating in foil forever! I didn't think they were salty,maybe most of the salt fell off! I'll be making these from now on.Thanks!

I love oven baked potatoes, they are so much more flaverful then microwaved ones. I tried this, but preferred my usual oven baked way (rub skins with oil, then bake) because I am one who likes to also eat the skins, and the excess salt on the skins with this recipe made that not an option. I think the Keg rolls the skins in parmesan when they take them out of oven. But if you don't eat the skins this would work for you.
