> Oven Baked Potatoes
You can't make a baked potato without an oven. There are other ways to cook a potato, but an oven is the only way to get a true baked potato in all its glory. Baking potatoes is easy and doesn't require a lot of effort. It just takes enough time to cook them.
The process for cooking a baked potato can be sped up using a microwave, but this really takes away from the true potential of a potato. Just make sure you leave enough time and you will be able to make a great baked potato. It usually takes between an hour and 90 minutes to fully bake a potato, so make sure you have enough time to do so. You will need to preheat the oven to about 350 degrees and then pop in the prepared potatoes by putting them directly on the oven rack. Be sure to put a sheet of foil or a cookie sheet underneath to catch any juices that drip down. After enough time has passed, the potatoes will be fully cooked and ready to be topped with all the great things that make a baked potato worth eating with a big steak or other delicious meal.
