How To Make A Baked Potato in the Oven
A baked potato is very simple to make, just 3 ingredients needed to get a deliciously crisp skin and a fluffy interior perfect for topping! The classic method of making a perfect baked potato is in the oven (although on a hot summer day, I often cook baked potatoes in the slow cooker).
      • WASH: Scrub potatoes to remove any dirt or debris.
      • POKE: Poke holes all over the potato using a fork – about 5 to 6 times. This prevents steam from building up inside of the potatoes while they bake. A potato can explode if steam builds up so make sure you poke right into the potato to create holes, not just pierce the skin.
      • BAKE: Brush the potatoes with olive oil and salt. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake.
To Foil or Not to Foil?
If you want a softer skin on your baked potatoes, wrap them in foil before they go in the oven. This helps to steam the skin keeping it from crisping up as much (although I prefer the skin to be crispy and skip the foil)!
How Long To Bake A Potato
A baked potato will take 45-60 minutes in the oven. Cooking times can vary depending on the size of the potatoes and the temperature of the oven, so the easiest way to test them is with a fork to make sure they’re soft throughout.
The great thing about baked potatoes is they can be baked at any temperature. If you have other things cooking in the oven, baked potatoes can just be thrown in quickly without too much to worry about.
Cooking Times:
      • 350°F 60 to 75 minutes
      • 375°F 50 to 60 minutes
      • 400°F 40 to 50 minutes
If the temperature is adjusted to match whatever else is cooking, just adjust the cooking time accordingly!
Want to save some time? Bake A Potato in the Microwave
If you are pressed for time (or coveted oven space), the microwave method will be your savior!
      • Scrub the potato and poke it with a fork as above.
      • Place it on a plate and microwave it on HIGH for 5 minutes.
      • Turn it over, and microwave it for 3-5 minutes longer or until fork-tender. Top and enjoy!
