I'm sold! I will never wrap my spuds in foil again! I have to admit that I rub them with the oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and put on a cookie sheet...I have a relatively new convection oven and am still slightly neurotic about getting the inside of it messy! This is an awesome way to make potatoes. Thanks so much-Amy

I was surprised that something so simple could make such a big difference over the way I normally bake potatoes. I normally smother my spuds in butter, but it simply wasn't necessary with these.

Yuuu-uuum! I've made this several times and I always use spray olive oil (non-stick cooking spray made with olive oil) to coat the 'tater. Then, I generously sprinkle on salt, pepper, and garlic powder. This is definitely the best way to make a baked potato.

This is the only way I have been making baked potatoes for over 40 years. I also sprinkle pepper over the outside and my family loves them. I started making baked potatoes this way years ago because this was how my elementary and h.s. cafeterias made them and I just loved them. Now, my family won't eat them any other way. I also use them in making Potato Soup #40173.

I altered this recipe and it was great! I used red potatoes, olive oil, and garlic salt. Delicious! The best baked potato I have ever made. Thank you.

Perfect baked potatoes! This makes the skins so tasty that I ate them as well. This is now the only way I will be making baked potatoes.

A great way to make baked potatoes. It will give the skin a great crunchy texture and a nice fluffy inside.

This is definitely the best way to cook baked potatoes - they actually bake instead of steaming in foil, and it makes for a much better texture.
