A "Hot" Tip
A Hot Potato tip that is!
One magical thing about life is that you are never too old to learn new things. Take the potato for instance. For all my married life I had been baking potatoes the same way ~ just like my Mother did. Wash them, wrap them in aluminum foil, and bake at a high temp. They turned out just "okay," but were always on the dry side. So, here comes the magic! I was watching a promo for Paula Deen one day and it said to stay tuned because she was going to show us how to make the perfect baked potato. Well, my ears perked up, and with pen and paper in hand I proceeded to watch her change the way I'll feel about baked potatoes forever!!!
So easy, peasy. All you do is:
Gather ingredients which are the potatoes (duh;) olive oil, and sea salt.
Scrub the potatoes and then rub them in the olive oil.
Sprinkle sea salt all over the potato ( not table salt)
Finally, poke one hole in the center of the potato.Place in a baking dish in a preheated 350 degree oven for one hour and voilla, you have a perfect baked potato!
Thanks for bringing a little magic into my day, Paula!!!!
Please excuse the quality of the pictures~ it's not easy taking a picture with one hand while you have olive oil on the other:)
