The Perfect Spud

Readers of this blog will know we Marshalls are potato people. We loves us some 'taters. Not many meals go by without us having them one way or another. So not only do I search for new ways to prepare them, but also updated versions of what I'm already doing. This was the case last night. We were having baked potatoes, but I wanted to do them differently than just throwing them in the microwave. In the warm months, I will par-cook them in the microwave and then wrap them in foil and finish them on the grill; and this gives them a great crispy outside w/ a fluffy inside. This new technique I found gives me the same result, but is done in the oven; and these turned out to be one of the best baked potatoes I have ever had!

Oven Baked Potatoes
4 Large baking potatoes
olive oil
Kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350º. Scrub potatoes well and dry off. Rub each potato w/ olive oil and sprinkle w/ Kosher salt. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 1- 1.5 hours depending on how large potatoes are. When fork goes through w/ no resistance, potatoes are done.
