Outback Steakhouse Baked Potatoes

Serves 6; 30min

Ingredients
  • 6 russet potatoes (or smaller potatoes if that's what you have on hand; baking time may vary)
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt, or to taste
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F.
  2. Rinse potatoes under cool, running water and pat dry with paper towels. Note: don't prick potatoes with a fork.
  3. Dip a rolled up paper towel in your olive oil and rub each potato all over with oil until they're shiny, but not so much that they're dripping.
  4. Transfer potatoes to a baking sheet and evenly sprinkle salt over them.
  5. Place in oven and bake for 50-55 minutes (less time for smaller potatoes), or until fork tender.
  6. Remove from oven and serve hot.
