Perfect Baked Potatoes
Rub russets with a little oil, season with salt, and toss directly in the oven—the perfect baked potato is a snap. For something fancier, top with Salsa Verde, Aioli, or Romesco.
- 4 russet potatoes, scrubbed
- 1 tbl Kosher salt
- 1 tbl olive oil
- butter and sour cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
With a fork, prick the potatoes all over about 6 times. Rub the potatoes with the oil and toss with the salt.
Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack. Bake until tender, 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving with butter and sour cream.
