This produced *perfectly* done potatoes. I like that it's so simple, but the recipe calls for a lot of salt, and even after brushing as much off as I could, they were still a bit too salty for me... my fiance and our roomie, however, thought they were perfect. :) Thanks for sharing!

I was a bit worried about not piercing the potatoes but shouldn't have been. They were done to perfection. I placed a pan on a lower rack in the oven to catch any salt that came loose from the potatoes. Made for I REDommend Tag Game.

The pefect potato! I loved the cripsy outside and I didn'e even have to add salt, I just used some from the skin. The Baked Vidalia Onion added a ton of flavor too. Great recipe and thanks for the onion recommendation too!
