Why I Love This Recipe
A great oven baked potato that tastes like it came from a restaurant kitchen.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 Idaho russet baking potatoes
extra-virgin olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Scrub the potatoes and pat dry. Using a sharp paring knife, poke several deep holes all over the potato.
Drizzle each potato with a light coating of olive oil and rub over the entire potato. Season each potato on all sides with some salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until very tender when pierced with a fork or skewer, about 45 minutes to an hour.
When the potatoes have cooked, cut them down the middle and squeeze the ends slightly. Serve with desired toppings.
