Savory Baked Potatoes

Recipe by Bone Man
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat the oven to 400-degrees F.
  • Scrub and dry the potatoes.
  • Use a fork to poke each potato a half dozen places about 1/2" deep -- this will prevent them from blowing up in the oven which can happen sometimes!
  • Rub each potato all over with olive oil and lay them out on a baking pan. Then sprinkle the kosher salt over them and rub it all over each potato. Not all of it will cling to the potato but that's okay.
  • Bake the potatoes on the baking pan on the lower-middle oven rack for one hour and then check one for tenderness by inserting a sharp knife into the center. It should insert very easily and smooth. If you hit a solid center, give them 10 more minutes and check them again.
  • After the potatoes come out of the oven, you can brush off as much of the salt as you wish (I leave it on and that way I don't have to salt my potato.).
  • Top the potatoes with any or all of the following condiments unless you prefer it vegetarian-style: crisp and crumbled bacon, butter, sour cream and chives, sharp cheddar cheese. (Vegetarians may want to sprinkle on a little Mrs. Dash garlic blend seasoning.).
