Bomb Baker Potatoes - Guy Fieri

A seriously great recipe from Guy Fieri. The salt seeps in thru the skin of the potatoes and gives the skin a great strong flavor. May be a bit salty for some folks, but very tasty

    So I watch my sodium intake but I understand the value of brining. Turkeys at thanksgiving are always better when brined so its a great idea for a potato. I only used maybe 1 1/2 TBS of sea salt for the brine and then garlic powder, pepper and fresh herbs as the coating. The simple act of brining with a smaller amt of sodium still impacted the flavor and crispness of the outer potato. The garlic and herbs I placed on the outside combined with cooking directly on the rack was amazing. The inside was moist and fluffy and the outer skin was crispy and seasoned. I will continue to use this method especially since it requires no aluminum foil.

    Does Mr. Fieri come clean your oven when the potatoes explode?
