DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash and dry off as many potatoes as you plan to serve, and count on each person eating 1-2 halves.
  • Pierce potatoes using a fork work your way around each potato stabbing deeply into it's flesh. 3-4 stabs should do it depending on the size of the potatoes you are using. This allows steam to escape during the cooking process.
  • Rub potatoes with oil to lightly coat.
  • Sprinkle with salt if desired.
  • Bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours depending on size on the middle rack in oven.
  • The skin will be puffed up, golden-brown and crispy, and the potato should squish easily and be very soft on the inside.
