Instructions

Let's make the Baked Potato!
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and position racks in top and bottom thirds. Wash potato (or potatoes) thoroughly with a stiff brush and cold running water.
  2. Dry Potato (or Potatoes), then using a standard fork poke 8 to 12 deep holes all over the spud so that moisture can escape during cooking. Place in a bowl and coat lightly with oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and place potato directly on rack in middle of oven. Place a baking sheet on the lower rack to catch any drippings.
  3. Bake 1 hour or until skin feels crisp but flesh beneath feels soft. Serve by creating a dotted line from end to end with your fork, then crack the spud open by squeezing the ends towards one another. It will pop right open. But watch out, there will be some steam.NOTE: If you're cooking more than 4 potatoes, you'll need to extend the cooking time by up to 15 minutes.
Let's Dress the Baked Potato! Use Leftover Do You Bake? Spinach & Artichoke Dip :
  1. After you have opened your baked potato, top with 1 - 2 Tablespoons of leftover Spinach & Artichoke Dip, a couple teaspoons shredded Mozzarella cheese and a few leaves of fresh spinach (optional). Return to the oven until cheese has melted and is slightly bubbly
Use your Do You bake? Chive & Onion Seasoning :
