Bake Potatoes Like a Pro plus Ten Surprising Toppings

Bake Potatoes Like a Pro plus Ten Surprising Toppings

Whether you're baking potatoes or sweet potatoes, having a technique that results in a crisp, seasoned skin, and fluffy, light flesh is where you want to be. I thought I'd highlight the sea-salt roasted baked potato technique I've been using exclusively for years. It's so simple, and works every time. The general guide-lines - straight on the rack, no foil, don't under-bake - you can see it below for the details. Building on that foundation, I'll share some topping ideas I'm excited about. As far as the ideas go, I'm going to focus on veg-friendly, healthful, and a bit unexpected. Enjoy! -h

1. Sea-Salt Baked Potatoes - (101 Cookbooks)

Yum yum yum! I also just made the burrito stuffed sweet potatoes from Laura Wright's First Mess cookbook. The recipe is featured at this link, but I also highly recommend the whole book.
