I know.. what you are saying… a baked potato is a baked potato. You just wrap them in foil and bake them! Well.. let’s just say that I have almost duplicated the taste of one of my favorite restaurant’s in Martin City, Missouri (Jess and Jims) makes theirs…
Here’s what you need:
Salt (Kosher or regular)
**whatever you want to put on your potato..
I like: butter, sour cream, bacon, grated cheese and Season Salt..
Wash your potatoes and put them in the large bowl.
Add about 1/4 cup of kosher or regular salt.
Add water to the bowl. You’ll want the water to cover the potatoes.
Add (another) 1/4 of salt to the water and potato mixture.
Let this stand over night or at least 4-5 hours. The salt does something
to the skin of the potato.. and makes the inside so FLUFFY.
Once the potatoes have taken their (at least) 5 hour salt bath.
Take them out of the water wrap them in foil and place them in a
pre heated 400 degree oven for 1 hour or until the potato is
soft when you squeeze it.
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
