Restaurant Style Baked Potatoes

Potatoes.  I absolutely love potatoes.  In any shape or form.  Baked potatoes are a great favorite of mine.  We have them at least once a week with supper.  Here is my favorite way to prepare them.

Start with giant, well scrubbed potatoes.

Find a sturdy sheet pan, your favorite olive or canola oil, a sharp knife and aluminum foil.

Gently stab all of your potatoes – so they don’t explode in your oven.

Generously coat with the oil…..and rub until covered completely.  Then, rub the rest into your hands.  It feels good and is very hydrating!

Heavily sprinkle with salt…..


Wrap tightly in the foil…..

Make sure that there are no loose spots.


Place them all on the baking sheet, and bake at *400 for 1 hour.

Sublime.  Utterly sublime!  Enjoy them on their own, or as a side.

Here’s the handy dandy recipe.

  1. I'll have to try it with the oil and foil...sometimes the skin is too crispy, so maybe just the last 15 minutes naked?? Popping over from Southern Plate...thank you for joining Meal Plan Monday!
