  • Russet potatoes (1 per person)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Toppings of your choice (think sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, chives, or whatever you fancy!)
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Scrub the potatoes clean under running water, then pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
  3. Pierce each potato a few times with a fork or knife to allow steam to escape during baking.
  4. Rub each potato with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. This helps to crisp up the skin while baking.
  5. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet lined with foil for easy cleanup.
  6. Bake the potatoes for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the skin is crispy and the flesh is tender when pierced with a fork.
  7. Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before handling.
  8. Cut a slit lengthwise in each potato and fluff up the insides with a fork.
  9. Load up your baked jacket potatoes with your favorite toppings and dig in!
