Tips for How to Make Stuffed Baked Potatoes You’ll Love
- Never just toss a potato into the microwave or oven as-is without some kind of covering or layer of protection–you’ll end up with not only a dry skin (blegh) but also some tough meat on the inside. I like to coat it with olive oil and roll potatoes in kosher salt, even if the recipe doesn’t call for it.
- When I preheat my oven to 400 degrees, I always throw my baking sheet into the oven too. That way, I don’t forget to put my potatoes on it–I hate it when they drip into the bottom of the oven.
- Always wait to break open your potatoes until they are cool enough to handle. You don’t want a burned finger.
- If there’s a question about putting more cooked bacon or sprinkling with remaining cheese, the answer is yes. More is never going to ruin these stuffed potatoes. Except when it comes to green onion–there is such thing as too much of that…
- Always season with salt and pepper. Something about adding salt to potato just makes it taste amazing.
