The Perfect Baked Potato


This simple recipe makes the best darn baked potato, with a fluffy inside and a crispy flavorful outside.  Make sure the eat the skin, because that’s where the nutrients live!

Serves 2

Time: 60 mins


  • 2 Idaho baking potatoes
  • olive oil
  • black pepper
  • coarse salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Poke a few holes on both sides of each potato, to avoid them exploding in the oven.
  3. rub or brush the outsie of each potato with olive oil, and roll in coarse salt.
  4. Place potatoes in the oven.  (No aluminum foil necessary.  I just place the potatoes on the rack, and put a pan underneath to catch any oil drippings)
  5. Roast potato for 60 minutes.  Add margarine, salt and black pepper to taste.
