How To Make the Perfect Baked Potato
- 4 russet baking potatoes
- Olive oil
- Coarse salt
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash potatoes thoroughly. Prick the skin of each potato with a fork several times.
- Rub about a teaspoon of olive oil onto the skin of each potato. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with coarse salt.
- Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on size and thickness of potatoes. (Best way to tell if they're done is to stick a fork in the center. If the potato is finished cooking, it will be easy to push the fork through with no resistance.) Serve and enjoy!
