What's Cooking: Baked Potato

(Potatoes, sea salt and oil)

I've made baked potatoes before. They are pretty simple. But recently I found a few great tips on how to improve them. After washes them off really well, stab them with a fork a dozen times. Then lightly coat the outside with olive oil and sea salt.

Then, and here's the part that surprised me, cook them in the oven WITHOUT foil. Apparently wrapping them in foil makes the skin a bit soggy. If you just set them on the rack or a baking sheet it crisps the skin... mmm. With a few fixings the potatoes are a whole meal.
