This is my version of the delicious potatoes we get at one of our local restaurants. I do like these crunchy skins! This is traditional with meat loaf at our house.

I have made these several times now, and I recommend baking at 425 for 1 hour. I do use rather large russet or Idaho potatoes. The skins are crisp and tasty, and no one leaves a bit of the potato uneaten! I have been told by a dinner guest that this was the best potato he had ever had! You can't do better than that. Thanks for sharing this.
