    Ingredients Print Recipe

  • 4 potatoes - 1/2 pound size russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons kosher salt


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash and dry the potatoes. Pour vegetable oil into a small dish, and dip a paper towel into the oil. Rub the paper towel over the potato. Place potato on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle kosher salt over potato. Bake potatoes in the oven for approximately 1 hour. Check potato for doneness by inserting a fork and if it presses through easily the potato has completed cooking.

Stephanie's advice? "You've got to try. Even Julia Child says 'What's the difference between a bad cook and a good cook? Practice, just practice.' You'll eventually get it."

Note: An Outback Steakhouse baked potato is $2.99 off the menu. It will cost you about 40 cents to do a similar version at home.
