Every once in a while I come upon an article or a recipe online and I think.... Why didn't I think of that?
This is one of those articles.
I really like the Splendid Table website. They really dive into recipes.
What was this miraculous recipe this week? Wait for it!!!!
How to cook a baked potato!
That's it! Simple as that.
From chosing the right potato (russet please), to what temperature to cook the potato at (450... yikes!) to actually using a meat thermometer to judge doneness (cook to 205 internatl temp).
I made these yesterday and they were awesome.
