Cooking For Bae: The Perfect Baked Potato

Looking for a great side to go with your skilled three-course meal for date night?  Here is the recipe to make the perfect baked potato from Gimme Some Oven:



  1. Potatoes (Large)
  2. Butter or Olive Oil
  3. Salt
  4. Black Pepper




  1. Turn oven to 450°F
  2. Line baking sheet with foil
  3. Poke holes all over the potato with a fork. (Very important to avoid explosions!)
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes.
  5. Brush oil or melted butter on the potatoes and sprinkle with a little salt.
  6. Cook for an additional 20 minutes.
  7. Once the potatoes are done (after 45-55 minutes of total cook time), cut potatoes open down the center with a knife. Add your favorite seasonings or toppings.


Ideas for toppings:

  • Classic: cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream, green onions
  • Chili
  • Guacamole
  • Broccoli Cheese


That’s it! How did it come out?
