Buttery & Salty

Perfect Baked Potatoes


Russet Potatoes Butter Kosher Salt

Step 1

Use a fork to puncture the outside of the potatoes several times, around all sides. Steam and pressure build up in the potatoes while they're cooking. Creating several air holes allows the pressure to escape and prevents a potato explosion!

Step 2

Pour the melted butter over the top of the potatoes. Use your hands to massage the butter on all sides of the potatoes.

Step 3

Sprinkle kosher salt around all sides of the potatoes. This will get a little messy, but that's okay!

Step 4

Bake the potatoes (without foil) for 45-60 minutes. During baking time, the skin will get nice and crispy, and the flesh will become fork-tender.

Step 5

Remove the potatoes from the oven. Gently pierce one of the potatoes with a fork to ensure that they're soft and cooked through. Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving your baked potato (without foil), and enjoy!
