Baked Potato

We've had a whole bunch of Idaho potatoes at one time and didn't know what to do with them. They sure didn't taste good when mashed so one time I tried to bake them they turned out really good.

4 Idaho Potatoes
Vegetable Oil

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray pan with pam and cover with aluminum foil for fast clean up. Prepare the potatoes by scrubbing them and making sure they're clean. Rub potatoes with oil and then poke all over with a fork to be sure they don't explode while in the oven. Season with salt when done. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Serve with sour cream, bacon bits, parsley, butter, and grated cheddar cheese on the side. Enjoy!


  1. We just had baked potatoes two days ago with roasted chicken, but we used Russet potatoes and they were about 2 pounds per piece! I had to bake for 2 hrs to make sure they were really done! Baked potatoes are so good!
