The secret to the perfect oven-baked potato is simple - bake it UNCOVERED in the oven, directly on the rack.
Rinse and dry potatoes, poke holes all around the potato with a fork, and then coat generously with olive oil and salt.
Place a cookie sheet on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any drips, then place the potatoes on a rack above. Bake for 1 hour at 450 degrees.
After baking, add your favorite toppings and enjoy! See some suggestions for toppings on the next slide.
