Baked Potato?

How do you guys cook your Baked Potatoes?

I’m looking for something other than throwing them in the microwave for 10 mins and putting butter / bacon bits on them.

Any ideas?
Coat outside lightly with oil, sprinkle kosher salt on it, 350 degrees in the oven for 1 hour. (Alton Brown style)

I end up putting butter, pepper, pepperjack cheese, and tearing up some turkey bacon ontop. Sprinkle some Frank’s Red Hot on it as wel.

I’ve also done broccoli and cheese before in the past as well.

Do you coat it with Olive Oil?

Also, what about wrapping them in aluminum foil? I’ve heard people like to do that as well.
Rub the outside of the potato with some kind of cooking oil, it makes the skin crispy (that is if you eat the skin, like I do).
I just wrap them in aluminum foil and stick it in the oven at 350 for about an hour…sometimes longer

we just put butter, salt, pepper, cheddar cheese, sour cream and bacon bits…
i just throw them in the microwave cause i’m lazy. bacon bits, brocolli, cheese, butter, sour cream…yummy
1 hour in the oven on 350, then drizzle truffle oil and sea salt with some chives on top

I don’t wrap them in aluminum foil. I just stick them right on the rack.

Put a pan under it though to catch any drippings… or if you’re lazy and live in an apartment like I do that you’re about to move out of, then just don’t put anything under them.
If you wrap them in alum. foil, then the skin won’t be crispy. Also it makes it harder for steam to escape, which results in your potato being soggy.

and BBQ ftw.

Alton brown also pokes them a million times with a fork.

I just poked them about 1 million times, applied a decent amount of butter, wrapped them in aluminum foil and placed on the grill. Gonna let them hang out there for a while.

The skin get crispy still?
I usually just nuke them, but while they are in the microwave I broil up a chicken breast. Cut up the chicken and put it in the tater with some brocolli, salt, pepper, cheese, and butter
In the oven for an hour on a bed of salt, turning over once half an hour in.

BTW Microwave cooking and Baking are different.
