Ever wonder how restaurants get their baked potatoes so amazing delicious? After many potato fails, I discovered the secret!

  • 1 Large Baking Potato
  • 2 tbsp melted salted (real) butter
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic salt/pepper to taste
  • tin foil
  1. Preheat oven to 400*.
  2. Place two ice cubes in microwave oven and microwave your un-pierced potato for 4-5 minutes depending on size. Add an additional 2-3 minutes/potato again depending on size and one additional ice cube per potato. Check on potato every three minutes for softness and add new ice cubes each time.
  3. Place each potato on individual foil square. Mix melted butter, garlic salt and pepper and apply generously to potato. Wrap potato in foil so no butter leaks.
  4. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes, turning at the 15 minute mark.
  5. Open and garnish as desired! **If potato is still hard, place in oven for another 10 minutes.
