The Perfect Baked Potato

Baked potatoes have been my nemesis for a long time.

I was the oldest in my family and on our farm that meant that I was always with my dad.  I didn’t realize until later on in life that it would mean I would have, um, lets say, ample of opportunity in the kitchen.  There was a time in college that I had to call home and ask my younger sister how to make a baked potato, then came her laughter.  Fast forward several years, I get married, have babies and cooking 3 meals a day.  I’ve came a long way, ask my brother-in-law. 🙂

Back to the potatoes, I have cooked them in the microwave, in a microwave covered with a potato and have even tried a potato bag in the microwave.  I’m here to tell you that there is nothing better than a baked potato that has baked in the oven for an hour.  They are PERFECT every time!

I line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the potatoes on.  Swirl on some olive oil and sprinkle on sea salt.  Rub the potatoes into the oil and sea salt, my kids love this part! 🙂



Bake these yummy potatoes at 350 for 1 hour.  Serve with a great grilled steak, use this rub!




Steak and baked potato, life doesn’t get any better!
