The Best Baked Potatoes begin with a medium to large sized Idaho potato cooked in a cast iron skillet. To elevate the natural flavor, we choose to stick to the basics and one special country secret.
This spud produces a top-shelf taste, it’s fluffy and tender inside, and has a crispy browned skin. This potato is the perfect addition to any dining experience!
The Best Baked Potatoes
When we were kids growing up in the country, our garden produced tons of potatoes. We honestly had potatoes every single day. Sometimes they were included in all three meals! Baked potatoes were one of our absolute favorites. Mom and Granny’s were amazing, there was something special about them. We didn’t realize for years what that special secret really was. Since discovering that secret, we use it 100% of the time and the kids even noticed the difference. Even when we make extra potatoes, planning on using them for home-fries for the next morning, there are never any left! These really are the BEST baked spuds! The flavor created with this recipe is spectacular, the potato is so soft and tender inside with a crispy jacket.
Baked Potatoes prepared in a cast iron skillet and rubbed in our secret surprise ingredient is absolutely the BEST potato you’ll ever taste. It is the perfect side dish for any special dinner. Our potatoes look spectacular, and their taste is fantastic. Your family will request that these get served multiple times a month with dinner.
Your guests will be amazed that your potatoes can be this attractive, fluffy, and tender, with that special flavor from that secret rub!
