Does anyone really “bake” potatoes at home anymore? Yes. I understand it may be a bit time consuming, but you will definitely appreciate the difference in taste and texture, as opposed to, microwaving them. I’m going to show you how you can recreate those perfectly Baked Potatoes you can order at any steakhouse, in your own kitchen. The insides will be super fluffy, and the outside, nice a crispy!
This is a “no foil” recipe. Foil steams the potato and will not allow you to achieve that crispy skin!
Heat your oven to 425 degrees. Rinse your potatoes really well and pat dry. Poke each potato about three times at the top with a fork.
Rub the entire surface of each potato with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt. I love this salt keeper…click here to purchase one similar to mine.
Place potatoes on sheet pan. I used a flat cast iron pan in my recipe. I would highly recommend using if you have one. Click here to purchase this exact one I used. Depending on the size of the potatoes, you will bake for at least 45 minutes. Test at the 45 minute mark by piercing with a fork. Mine were fairly large, so they took one hour to fully bake.
To serve, split the top of the Baked Potatoes, open and top with your favorites. Butter, cheese, sour cream, chives, bacon, parsley, whatever you so desire! I kept mine simple and just topped with butter and fresh parsley! Make tonight a true “Steakhouse” meal by serving these beauties along side the most Perfect Steak and Creamed Spinach!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
