Baked Potato Perfection: Summer Recipe Edition

Selecting the Potatoes

Choose the right potatoes. Russet potatoes are ideal for baking due to their starchy texture, which results in a fluffy interior.

Prepping for Perfection

Prep your potatoes properly. Wash and dry them thoroughly, then poke several holes with a fork to allow steam to escape during baking.

Seasoning the Skin

Season the potato skins. Rub the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. This ensures crispy, flavorful skins.

Optimal Baking Temperature

Bake at the right temperature. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and bake the potatoes directly on the oven rack for about an hour until tender.

Herb-Infused Butter

Make herb-infused butter. Mix softened butter with fresh herbs like parsley, chives, and thyme for a flavorful topping.

Healthy Toppings

Top with healthy ingredients. Greek yogurt, chopped green onions, and a sprinkle of cheese add flavor without the extra calories of traditional sour cream and bacon.
