Baked potatoes

sueatmo | Sep 30, 2009 07:18 PM

I need to bake 8-10 potatoes in my oven, and be able to hold them there for perhaps an hour before serving them. I'm not worried about baking them, as I of course have done this many times. However, I am not sure about leaving them in the convection oven after I have turned it off. Will they dry out? Lose their crisp skins? Be lukewarm? Has anyone else done this?

I normally scrub russets, oil them and bake them at 450 deg. for however long it takes. I think with this many spuds, it would be probably about an hour if I put them in a preheated oven.

Thanks in advance.
