Baked Potato

Baked potatoes are so simple to make and taste a lot better when done in the oven. Toaster ovens are perfect if you are only making one or two...

My favorite way to prepare them is by simply taking well washed russet potato(s) with a few poked holes for ventilation and placing each one on a sheet of tin foil with some olive oil and salt. Wrap it up and bake at 400 degrees for about an hour. The potato will melt in your mouth and the salty skins will leave you wanting MORE.

Sometimes I like the bare necessities and only add butter.

Other times I like adding cheese, pepper and tabasco.

Potatoes are so delicious with almost any condiment... salsa, sour cream, chives, bacon bits, chili, ketchup, gravy, hot sauce. Get creative!


  1. YEESSSS! I am obsessed with baked potatoes. They are sooo good. I like to put some bacon on mine. :)

  2. I love the bottled bacon bits! They actually contain no bacon (or any meat) but they taste just like bacon! Mmm.

  3. yum yum... i may have to go get a bag of potatoes after work. that cheesy potato looks amazing!

  4. i made french fries yesterday... so easy and tasty!!! mmmm!

  5. I had a baked potato with chili yesterday!! I love them!

  6. Mmm I loooooove french fries! Favorite type of potato!

    I also love potato chips, mashed potatoes, hashbrowns, twice baked potatoes. Ahhh, potatoes are so versatile! Love them!
