QUICK BAKED POTATOES

February 6, 2014

My favorite comedian in high school was Mitch Hedberg. He’s a genius of one liners. His one about baked potatoes is particularly applicable – “It takes forever to cook a baked potato in a conventional oven. Sometimes I just throw one in there, even if I don’t want one. ‘Cause by the time it’s done, who knows?”

I agree! And baked potatoes are so great I need to be able to making them more efficiently. This is it. These are the flakiest, crispiest, tastiest (and fastest!) baked potatoes I’ve ever eaten.

    We eat predominately paleo and I tried this recipe with sweet potatoes and coconut oil. SO GOOD! This is now my favorite way to cook any kind of potato.

    These are the BEST! Made them last night & only use 1 russet potato for my husband & I. Very easy & yummy.

    Thank you for posting it.

    Love your blog.

    Did this tonight- my husband loved it!! They were way better than traditional baked potatoes and so much easier. Thank you!!

  • I am trying this for dinner tonight. I hate how long it usually takes to bake potatoes, so I am excited for this variation! I made your “World’s Best Chicken” last night. It. was. amazing. That is all.
