We top ours with margerine, sour cream, shredded cheese, bacon bits (artificial, cuz they are SO much tastier) and chopped green onin. A while back I used to top with broccoli, ham, cheese, salt and pepper.....mmm good

Basic Baked Potatoes

Large baking potatoes
Olive oil

Wash the potatoes well and then prick all over with a fork. Coat them with the oil and salt - messy but fun! Bake in the oven for about 1 hour at 375 degrees F.

If I am in a hurry I start them in the Microwave and finsh them in a hot oven.

:D Hi....

I bake mine. Poke them a few times, put into pre-heated 350-375 till done{depends on the size} Don't wrap it, that's more like steaming. When done {depending on my mood} I will either scoop them out and add; butter, sour cream, minced scallions, garlic powder, S+P and grated cheddar. Or just straight up with butter, sour cream and S+P. Works for me!
Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.

I bake mine like PolishedTopaz. I actually like them a little overdone. I like the skins to be a little tough. I usually top mine with plain butter or with sour cream and chopped green onion or chives. Sometimes I fix them like my mom did. She cut them in half the short way and scooped out most of the potato. She put butter on the scooped out part and also in the scooped out shell. It's hard to explain, but those little potato shell cups really have an interesting flavor eaten like that.

There are soime excellent arguments why we should never use a microwave, and doing so wrecks baked potatos anyways...

Use the old fashioned oven, insert cleaned, washed baking potatos on bottom rack and cook at 400 for one hour...or if you want to foil wrap them you could, but I like the way the skin comes out without the wrap...

I'm resurrecting the baked potato thread...any further input from anyone?

I usually foil-wrap mine and bake at 350-375 for an hour or till done. At this altitude, it seems to take longer.

I notice some use olive oil before baking, some use nothing. Does anyone use shortening?
Practice random acts of kindness.

I wash the potatoes, poke a few holes in them with a fork so they don't explode (it happens!), and stick them into a preheated oven at 375F for an hour. Then I usually make twice baked potatoes out of them because everyone seems to like those better than a plain old baked potato.

BTW, a potato cooked in a microwave doesn't bake. It steams.
