Pretty Good Basic Recipe. After trying, made a couple of personal adjustments. Love baked potatoes so always make extra and keep on hand in refrig. Don't know how long they last this way because they always disappear too fast. Cut potato in half. Lay flat side down and puncture twice with a fork. Roll over and either puncture the meaty side multiple times with a fork to aerate or use a knife to cut three l/4" slits lengthwise. For 6 potatoes, melt @ 3 Tbsp butter (salted or unsalted), and with basting brush coat a plentiful layer of butter the length of each potato side. Sprinkle on some Kosher or sea salt to taste, and we like to add McCormick's Garlic Pepper mix, but you can add any spice combo that is your pleasure. Sometimes I also add a topping of Oscar Meyer Bacon Pieces. Press the two sides together and wrap tightly in foil - seam side up is just common sense. Oven at 400 degrees, preheat cookie sheet, evenly space potatoes and bake 75 minutes. When done and you open up the foil, sprinkle on some cheese of choice or a layer of sour cream, some broccoli bits, chili, whatever, then serve. If you store some of these puppy's for later, remove foil, reheat in microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on high, then put on toppings. You can also do these on a grill instead of an oven but you'll have to gauge the time based on your grill temp, or if you're camping, make ahead and just throw in the campfire coals for about 45-60 minutes.
