At work, for 60-count taters, I wash, brush with butter, sprinkle with salt/pepper, don't prick, and bake nekkid in a 350 degree F convection oven for one hour. Perfect taters.

I eat the skins, and prefer soft skins, which works perfectly with butter-brushed taters. Some butter, sour cream, real bacon bits, chives, cheese, and more pepper when I eat it.

If you really want a good baked tater, make the bacon for bacon bits before you start to prep the taters, and rub the taters with the bacon grease, then season with pepper only, as the grease has enough salt already. Proceed as above. YUMMY!

Handy tip if using a Microwave either before oven baking to finish or going the whole way, insert a cocktail stick down to the centre and leave there.
when the centre is cooked the stick will pop out

wrap `em in foil and throw `em into the fire for half hour.
we don`t eat them often, and the only times we do is when there`s either a large BBQ or campfire.

rare to never we do them at home in my kitchen.

that sounds deelish allen. gonna try it.

recently, i tried to make a "real" baked potato (nekkid in the oven, not the microwave), but it came out too dry and tough.
i haven't baked a tater in the oven in so long that i couldn't remember if you should prick the spud first or not when using the oven, so i went ahead and stabbed away. the combination of over-pricking and baking too long at 350 dried it out.
