How To Bake a Potato



A nasty little stomach bug knocked me down this past week and now that I’m up and eating again, the only food I can stomach is a crispy baked potato.  I top it with a blend of olive oil and greek yogurt then sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and lots of chives.  It’s my come-back-to-life meal.

Steakhouse Baked Potato

Makes 1

1 russet potato

1 teaspoon olive oil

salt, to taste

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Scrub the potato under cold running water to remove any dirt.  Pierce several times with a fork or knife. Drizzle with olive oil and lightly salt all over.  This extra step guarantees a crispy skin.

When your oven reaches temperature, place your potato directly on the rack. No foil needed! Bake until the skin is crispy and the insides soft and fluffy, about 1 hour 25 minutes.  Top as desire.

Tell me, what’s your favorite get better food?
