The perfect baked potato!
With a little preparation and a few ingredients you can make the tastiest baked potatoes at home. My wife loves the potatoes at Texas Roadhouse, and therefore I took it upon myself to try to duplicate.
The main thing about these potatoes would be the salty exterior and secondly the fluffy interior. To ensure that the flavor is matched we would have to visit the restaurant for research purposes… just kidding.
My wife had a scrapbooking event to attend today so we assembled the ingredients and made the tasty taters for her to take with her.
A quick note about potatoes from www.idahopotato.com
A 5 ounce potato has no fat, cholesterol, or sodium. There are only 26 grams of carbohydrates (2 fiber and only 1 sugar) and it even has a couple grams of protein.
So again moderation is the key and of course be careful what you top it with.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Several small/medium potatoes
I like to use my Pampered Chef fluted stoneware baker, the sides allow the heat to cook the potatoes evenly.
Bake at 350 for 90 minutes and then let cool for about 20 minutes. The outside is crispy and salty while the inside is fluffy. Add butter, sour cream, bacon bits, chives, etc. Enjoy
