Best Baked Potatoes



4 mediumpotatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. A preheated oven reduces total cooking time.
  2. Scrub the potatoes under cold running water and pat dry.
  3. Prick each potato twice with a fork.
  4. Place potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake about 1 hour or until potatoes are cooked through. Bake at least 4 potatoes at one time for energy efficiency. Consider baking more potatoes than needed for one meal and refrigerate the extras for a next day meal.
  5. Carefully remove the potatoes from the oven using oven mitts or tongs.
  6. Serve immediately or let cool, then refrigerate in a plastic bag and use within 4 days. The potatoes will “sweat” inside the bag if you do not let them cool before you put them in the bag. Placing the potatoes in a sealed bag helps prevent them from drying out.
