Oven Baked Potatoes

Now that the weather is finally cooling off, my thoughts are turning to more Autumn and Winter-like foods. Baked potatoes are not something we commonly have, but the potatoes looked tasty when I was shopping last week, so I picked some up. I searched around for a recipe and found one that was simple enough. However, the final ingredient was salt which would require a substitute. I decided to use onion powder and granulated garlic.

medium baking potatoes
olive oil
onion powder
granulated garlic

  1. Wash the potatoes well with a vegetable brush and let dry (keep the skin on).
  2. Stab the potatoes 4-5 times with the tines of a fork to crate holes for the steam to escape.
  3. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil on the dry potato and use your hand to coat the entire outside.
  4. Sprinkle the onion powder and garlic around the outside of the potato and set aside
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the potatoes are coated and seasoned.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1-1.5 hours or until the potatoes are soft.

We at the potatoes with Kefir Labne Cheese instead of sour cream. My husband, who isn't a fan of potatoes, said they were the best baked potatoes he had ever had. This recipe is definitely a keeper after that comment.
