Easy Meal: Baked Potato

Baked potatoes are so underrated!!
Such an easy and satisfying meal, perfect for dinner (and lunch the next day).

Preheat oven 350F degreees. Rack in the middle.

1. Pierce cleaned/brushed potatoes (russet) with a fork (all over).
1. Apply a thin coat of olive oil - I just pour a little bit in my hands and give 'em a little rub down.
2. Roll them into a plate of coarse/kosher salt
3. Place on baking tray and bake for a total of 60 minutes, turning them over at 30 mins.
4. In the meantime, prep your toppings. Bacon for me, but if you prefer a healthier option you can steam broccoli? Grate cheese if using.
5. Remove potatoes from oven, slit the top with a knife and squeeze the ends towards the middle/top (just to make it look pretty - I never have any luck with this, so most of the time I just split it in half and call it a day). Pour cheese into the middle and allow it to naturally melt or nook the cheese first then just pour it on top.
