TGIF!!!! This has been a really long week of early mornings for me. I figured I would end this week with a simple tip on how to cook baked potatoes or sweet potatoes.

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees.
Wash Potatoes (do not dry).
Use a fork and poke holes around the potato. This prevents the potato from "exploding."
Sprinkle outside of entire potato with garlic salt.
Place in the oven for 1 hour. Time may vary depending on how big of a potato you have. If you have a bigger potato, expect to bake it for 1 hour 15 minutes-1.5 hours.

You will now have a potato that has a crunchy skin but soft inside. My husband and I literally scrape our plates every time we cook our potato this way. This beats heating a potato in the microwave!
Note that this recipe is for sweet potatoes too. The balance of salty on the outside and sweet on the inside is delicious!
