The Perfect Baked Potato

June 14

Are you looking for the perfect side dish for this summers grilled meats?  How about a perfectly done baked potato?  The crispy skin and a fluffy insides of these spuds are sure to leave your guests wanting one more bite!






The Perfect Baked Potato


  • 6 Large Potatoes.  (I prefer Yukon Gold, but any red potato works great, too)
  • 1 egg white
  • Your favorite flaked sea salt.  (I prefer smoked or Hawaiian pink sea salt)
  • Cracked Black Pepper

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Wash potatoes thoroughly with a vegetable brush under running water. Dry.  Then using a standard fork poke each potato 15-20 times so that moisture can escape during cooking. 

In small bowl, whip egg white until it forms a foam.  Roll potatoes in egg foam and place on foil lined baking sheet.  Sprinkle the potatoes on all sides with sea salt (1/2 to 1 tsp each) and cracked pepper.  (about 1/8 tsp)

Bake 1 hour or until skin feels crisp but flesh beneath feels soft. Serve with your favorite olive oil, butter, or sour cream.  Enjoy!
