Please note: Be sure to poke both ends of the potato before baking because you might have a great mess in your oven...they can explode if you don't!

How to Make Baked Potatoes
by: Jay

Here is my tip for how to make a baked potato. For the best baked potato ever you want to be sure to use a potato that was specifically grown for baking.

Contrary to what most people believe, there are several types of potatoes for different cooking needs, such as baking, boiling and frying. In my opinion a russet baking potato will work best.

Always start with a cleaned potato. With that being said, wash and scrub the outside skin of your potato. Next apply a light coat of vegetable oil to the potato's outer skin and then bake it in a pre-heated oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 45-60 minutes.

Serve your soft and moist baked potato with your favorite toppings such as cheese, sour cream, chives, bacon bits, etc.
