This Baked Potato Recipe is easy to make with just Russet potatoes and seasonings. Top it any way you like for the perfect side dish at any meal!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Wash and scrub potatoes until clean. Dry with a clean lint-free towel.
Rub each potato all over with half of the oil (2 tablespoons between 6 potatoes). Pierce the center of each potato with a knife and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 1 hour, or until tender. If you have very large potatoes, you may need to add to the cook time.
Remove from the oven and adjust the temperature to 425 F (use the convection setting if you have it). Brush each potato with remaining oil, and season with salt and pepper.
Bake at 425 F for 15-20 minutes, until skins are crispy. Serve.
