Not for the faint of heart or those on a low sodium diet! The rest can enjoy a great potato! A quick way to cook is to follow the microwave directions for 5 minutes for 4 potatoes and then finish in oven set at 425 F for 20 minutes. This will allow potatoes to "dry" and crisp skin. Thnx for posting, Burned Toast. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
This recipe is even better if you use bacon grease instead of olive oil. Of course, most things are.
Most excellent! I made this exactly as posting, using coarse kosher salt to roll the oiled potatoes in. I did not add anything else, and they were divine. I will definitely be making these again, but I think I would like to follow the method proposed by "Chopped Liver" below in order to speed up the process. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2011.
I thought these were good, but a little too salty for my taste. Next time I'll just use less salt. I made them in the microwave. DH didn't seem impressed. Oh well.
Such a simple recipe, such an awesome potato. I don't think that I will ever go back to baking a potato the way that use to.
Will be making this again, all the time.
I made this with a salmon and asparagus dinner and they were very good. My oven must be an 'underachiever'.....I had baked the potatoes (only 2 of them; 1 small, 1 med) at 400 for 45 minutes and they weren't quite done so I left them in another 20 minutes. I had also put them in foil. The skins didn't crisp up so I'll make these again and give it another shot. All in all, a great potato! Thanks for posting.
Had this last month and forgot to rate. Wonderful baked potato. I had this with Steamed Snow Crab Legs. I felt like I was eating at my favorite place to eat, Red Lobster... yummmm I followed your recipe with the exception that I cooked in a toaster oven. Very happy with results. Thanks for posting
Thank you so much for sharing these!! I've loved the potatoes at Red Lobster for a long time and never been able to get them exactly right until I tried yours. Baked in oven, no foil exactly as written. Will be a favorite at our home and my children's homes.
