    kiwidutch's Note:

    I took a photo one day on Zaar of some chicken and included a jacket potato in my meal and was asked how I got it so crispy. Sadly my only wise answer was: Lazyness !This is an ultra simple recipe where the potatoes are baked in the oven WITHOUT any tin foil in sight. Cooking time can vary from 30 minutes to one hour depending on the type and size of potato. Voila! Add the toppings of your choice.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 large potatoes (suitable for baking)

    Toppings

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat your oven at 400 F (200 C).Scrub the potatoes well but keep them whole: don't peel or slice them. Place them onto a chopping board and stab each of them with a vegetable knife 4 or 5 times in various places.
    2. 2
      Put them onto the middle rack of the oven and cook for about 40 minutes or until they are soft and cooked though when tested with a knife.
    3. 3
      Place the cooked potato on the chopping board and cut an X shape in the top, but not all the way though, then using a clean towel or oven gloves (these babies are HOT) push the bits between the X to make it pop up nice and decratively and to have a place to put some butter or the topping of your choice. Enjoy!

      After scrubbing and poking a few holes, I rub potatos with olive oil (or veg or peanut) and some kosher salt before baking. The skin gets crunchy and salty. When I serve these, no one leaves any potato skin on their plate!

      This is, of course, the correct (and perfect) way to bake a potato! If you use foil, then you are making a "steamed" potato. I usually use large potatoes, so cook them closer to an hour. I'll have to try the oil and salt method other reviewers have tried. This is the only way to make a real baked potato!
