How to Bake a Potato
A no brainer, huh? But do those who grease, heavily salt with large grain salt and wrap in foil before baking have the right method? Do they taste better as I think they do? Do you rub fat of any kind on the outside and/or wrap them up? I usually microwave them in the nude for a time, then finish in the oven for a crispier jacket. It's certainly quick.
