Ingredients

4 Idaho or russet potatoes, (8–11ounces each) 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

  1. 1. Place the rack in position B and preheat the toaster oven to 400ºF on bake setting. 2. Scrub the potatoes thoroughly and dry. 3. Lightly rub each potato with ¼ teaspoon of the olive oil. 4. Use a fork to prick potatoes, about 6 to 8 times. Place directly on the rack and bake until soft and easily pierced with a knife, about 55 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven. 5. To serve, pinch open the top, fluff the interior with a fork and serve topped with butter, extra virgin olive oil, margarine, or sour cream, as desired. Add kosher or sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
  2. Variation: Substitute sweet potatoes or yams for baking potatoes.
