Pretty Perfect Baked Potatoes

November 7, 2012 § 1 Comment

So, potatoes are ugly to photograph. But, these taters are pretty good. This seems like kind of a ridiculous post because it is so short, but I thought I’d share anyway! There’s all kinds of fancy potatoes out there, but this works great with the cheap baking potatoes you get at the store.

A lot of people wrap potatoes in foil, but if you want crisp skin you are better off placing them directly on the rack.

I don’t have anything more to say. I warned you this would be a ridiculous post. Easy, tasty, do it.


  • baking potatoes
  • olive oil
  • coarse salt (regular would probably work)


Preheat your oven to 350°. Scrub your potatoes and dry them thoroughly. Rub olive oil all over the outside. Rub salt all over the outside. Poke holes in the tater with a fork. Place potatoes directly on the oven rack; you can put a cookie sheet underneath if you are worried about oil dripping. Bake for about an hour, or until a fork comes out easily. (I did these at the same time I made this; since the temperature was higher, I baked them for 45 minutes and that seemed to work).
