Baked potatoes have been the tasty side dish to a juicy steak for many years. Cooking a baked potato at home is easy, as long as you are prepared and don’t try to rush the cooking process. Read below to find out how to cook baked potatoes.
Take a trip to the supermarket and choose the best looking baking potato you can find. Don’t worry about it being too big, you can always save half of it for lunch the next day.
After arriving home you need to rinse the potato off and remove any dirt or other debris. Set the oven at 350 degrees. Using a paring knife, poke several holes in the potato. While the potato is still wet, cover it with some rock salt and then wrap it in foil.
Place your potato in the oven and cook for slightly over an hour. You will know your potato is done when it is fork tender (meaning once you can easily poke it with a fork). Baked potatoes are a good source of potassium and can be enjoyed with a variety of toppings from sour cream to salsa.
