Baked potatoes– simple and delicious. Take a medium size Idaho baking potato and rub the outside with olive oil. Place 1 tbs of both kosher salt and fresh ground pepper onto a plate. Take the oil rubbed potato and roll in the salt and pepper. Place in a 375˚ F oven directly on the rack and back for 1 ½ hours. The skin of the potato is super crispy and delicious and the inside is light and fluffy.
- slice the potato open and sprinkle with crispy bacon, sliced scallions and a scoop of sour cream
- slice the potato in half and place cooked broccoli, salt & pepper and shredded sharp cheddar cheese (place on foil lined baking tray and put under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly!)
- slice the potato in half and place some thinly sliced portabella mushroom & sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese (place on a foil lined baking tray and put under the broiler until mushrooms are cooked and cheese is melted.)
