Fluffy Baked Potatoes

Easy baked potatoes that are fluffy inside!

baking potatoes
vegetable oil or solid crisco
Eva's salt or kosher salt
foil

Wash potatoes. Rub with oil or crisco. Sprinkle with salt and roll up in foil. Bake at 400 for 1 hour. Take out of oven and throw the potatoes onto a cookie sheet, one at a time to break up the fibers. This is what makes them fluffy when you cut them open. Really!

  2. I am planning on making baked potatoes tonight with my homestyle meatballs. I am definitely going to try this. I always wondered how some people got their potatoes to turn out this way. Thanks Beth!

  3. How'd you learn that trick? I will definitely be trying it next time. I always get so frustrated at how long potatoes take to bake in the oven, we usually do them on the grill, or I get impatient, take them out of the oven and microwave them till done. Thanks for this idea.
