DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash potatoes thoroughly with a stiff brush and cold running water.
  • Dry, then using a standard fork poke 8 to 12 deep holes all over the potatoes.
  • Place in a bowl and coat lightly with oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt
  • Place potatoes directly on top rack in middle of oven. Place a baking sheet on the lower rack to catch any drippings.
  • Bake 1 hour or until skin feels crisp and inside feels soft.
  • NOTE: If you're cooking more than 4 potatoes, you'll need to extend the cooking time by up to 15 minutes.
