Preheat oven to 350 F Russett potatoes are recommended. Clean them first. Poke holes deep into the potatoes with a fork to allow steam to escape. Lightly coat each potato with olive oil and salt. Average baking time is just over an hour (1:15)
Baked potatoes can be made in about 20-30 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, 15-20 minutes on a grill, or 6-10 minutes in a microwave. Always remember to pierce your potatoes on both sides before cooking, no matter which method.
