Finally the perfect baked potato!!! I put these in the oven at 450 and they came out with crisy skins and a soft center. This will be the only way I make baked potatoes from now on!!!!

After reading so much about these in the forum I just had to try them. I don't know where the name came from but I've been baking my potatoes like this ever since I was old enough to use the stove. My belated husband of 40 years said he learned how to do it on a campfire when he was a boy scout. When we went camping he'd bury the spuds in the hot coals before we went fishing. It was so nice to come back to camp and fry up the trout, warm a can of pork and beans and dig up the potatoes. I sure miss those days! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

MMMMmmmmmm! I have been making Linda's Fantabulous Baked Potatoes for a million years. (What would they be if they were German or Italian???). I think everyone should turn up the heat when they bake potatoes and never ever wrap them in foil. The kids used to call these 'rocky' potatoes. And during a power outage I baked them in the fireplace! Viva La Tater!

Who knew that this style of making potatoes had a name! LOL I've been making my baked potatoes like this my entire life; that's 57 years worth of "taste-testing" this recipe. :) I've read on other websites where people will make it like this, but will roll the wet potato in Kosher salt before putting in the oven. I don't care for salt so I'd never do that but as this recipe stands, it's the BEST way to make "Mickies" or baked potatoes!

I have enjoyed these many times using an open fire while camping in the great outdoors. Yummy!

Since I don't have a wood stove, I bump the temp up to 450 degrees F. Yes, agreed, the skin is the best part. Totally awesome! Sour cream and butter and fresh-ground pepper are musts!~

There is *no* other way to bake potatoes. I had these just the other night. Food for the soul!
