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!
