Crispy Skin Baked Potatoes

I still remember while growing up having steak on Sunday with a nice baked potato. We use to wrap in foil and bake in the oven. We use to cook on the grill too. My favorite though is making it in the oven so the potato skin gets a nice crispy exterior.

This is very simple to do. Check it out.

Crispy Skin Baked Potatoes


2 baked potatoes, cleaned and dried
1 T olive Oil
1 T kosher coarse salt

Directions: Preheat oven to 375°. Rub the olive oil over the potatoes completely. Sprinkle generously with the salt. Poke potatoes 3 times with a fork. Put on baking sheet and cook in the oven for 1 hour – 1 hour and 15 minutes depending on size of the potato. Once potato is done, it will have a nice crispy exterior. Cut open and fill with your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.
