How to bake a potato in the oven perfectly every time
TAP FOR RECIPE
Use a fork to poke 6-10 holes in each potato. This will help cook it evenly and prevent it from exploding in the oven.
DRIZZLE WITH OIL
Drizzle each potato with olive oil. This will help make their skin nice and crispy in the oven.
SEASON & RUB
Generously sprinkle each potato with salt and pepper and rub the spices and oil into the potatoes.
Bake at 425ºF for 45-60 minutes. The high temperature will crisp up the skin, while creating a super tender inside.
