Stop steaming your potatoes and bake them

baked-potatoes-on-oven-rackI’d been doing it wrong for my entire life.

Wrapping a potato in tin foil and sticking it in the oven or on a BBQ is more like steaming your potatoes than baking them.

If you want the best baked potato ever, try this:

1. Wash your potatoes with a firm bristled brush then dry with a clean towel. (Use a good baking potato like Russets.)

2. Brush the potatoes lightly with olive oil and salt.

3. Place potatoes directly on the rack in the oven at 400 F for 45 minutes.

Be prepared for the best baked potato ever. Don’t be surprised if your oven smells like cookies are baking in there – it’s the yummy potatoes!

Serve with your favourite topping. If you’ve never tried it, homemade pesto on top of real baked potatoes is to DIE for.
