4. Bake at 385* for about an hour, or until done.
I realize alot of people like to just nuke their potatoes
and be done with it but I am completely convinced
there is no better baked potato than one made the
old-fashioned way – in the oven.
When people say they can’t be bothered to actually bake
their potatoes, I really don’t understand that.
It really does make a difference! My husband used to
never eat the skin off russett potatoes until I
quit throwing them in the microwave and started
baking them in the oven. The skin has a better texture
than what you get from using the microwave.
Here’s the way I do it:
1. Scrub potatoes and prick holes all around with a fork.
2. Lightly cover with olive oil.
3. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
