Delicious Baked Potatoes Recipe

Delicious Baked Potatoes Recipe: Bake a potato perfectly every time! With the olive oil & sea salt coating, it’ll come out of the oven with crispy skin and fluffy insides that are delicious with your favorite toppings.

Delicious Baked Potatoes Recipe

Equipment

  • Baking Sheets (I use these nonstick ones from USA Pan Bakeware!)
  • Parchment Paper (this one doesn’t burn)

Ingredients

  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a fork to poke a few holes into the potatoes. Place on the baking sheet, rub with olive oil, and sprinkle liberally with sea salt all over. Bake 45 to 60 minutes, or until the potato is fork-tender and the skin is crisp.
  • Slice open each potato, fluff the insides, and serve with desired toppings.

Baked Potato Recipe Tips

  • Skip the foil! The key to making a good baked potato is getting really crispy skin. If you wrap the potatoes in foil, the potato skins will shrivel and soften in the oven. For the best results, leave the potatoes unwrapped.
  • Don’t skimp on the salt. Are you someone who likes to eat potato skins? If you make this baked potato recipe, you will be! Coating the spuds in salt makes the skins extra-crispy and flavorful. Plus, with a bit of the salty skin in each bite, you won’t need to worry about seasoning the potato flesh as you eat.
  • Know that the cooking time will vary. In the recipe below, I say to bake your potatoes for 45 to 60 minutes. This is a wide range, but I list it for a reason. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the potatoes. Be ready to take them out of the oven when they’re fork-tender and their skin is crisp. The baking time will be longer for larger potatoes and shorter for small ones.
