Baked Potato

Potato is one American's staple food. A meal is not complete without any potato on the plate, fried, mashed or baked. As a Filipino, I am not much of a potato lover but I do like baked potato topped with sour cream and bacon bits.

Baked potato is so easy to cook. You can bake it in the oven with or without foil or in the microwave. Bake potato can be serve plain, with butter or toppings you like. Find potatoes that are similar in size so they will cook evenly and get done at the same time.
For this recipe I wrapped the potatoes in foil for  a soft and fluffy inside.

  • Potatoes

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Scrub the potatoes under running water to remove all the dirt.
  3. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  4. Using a fork, pierce the potatoes deeply with a fork three to four times on each side to allow steam to escape during baking.
  5. Wrap with foil. 
  6. Bake for 1 hour or until soft.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  8. Slice the potato down the center, and serve with butter or sour cream. Sprinkle shredded cheese or bacon, if desired.
