Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, this is how to make the perfect baked potato. Just add your favorite toppings and dig in!

To make the best potatoes, you really only need 10 minutes of active time in the kitchen.

Russet potatoes Olive oil Sea salt


Scrub the potatoes to remove any dirt from the skin. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork or knife. 


Rub the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt.


Bake for about 50 minutes. When the potato is fully baked, the skin will be crisp to the touch and a fork or butter knife will slide right into the potato easily.


Let cool for a few minutes, then carefully cut them open. Use a fork to fluff the potatoes and serve warm with some melted butter drizzled over the fluffy insides.


Just sit back and relax while the oven does the rest of the work!
