Restaurant Style Baked Potatoes


For a great baked potato, like the ones you get at steakhouses, start with a mealy-fleshed baking potato such as an Idaho. Do not wrap it in foil unless you want a steamed potato. This recipe produces a potato with a crisp exterior and a fluffy interior.


  • Idaho Potatoes
  • Salt


  1. Wash the potato well and while still damp, rub it with plenty of salt. This draws the moisture from the potato during baking, giving it a fluffier texture.
  2. Pierce the potato with a fork.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees F for 40 to 60 minutes or until tender.

Servings: 4
