Perfect Baked Potatoes

Rub russets with a little oil, season with salt, and toss directly in the oven—the perfect baked potato is a snap. For something fancier, top with Salsa Verde, Aioli, or Romesco.

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. 2With a fork, prick the potatoes all over about 6 times. Rub the potatoes with the oil and toss with the salt.
  3. 3Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack. Bake until tender, 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
  4. 4Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving with butter and sour cream.
