The Best Baked Potatoes

Sharing is caring!

Potatoes are a staple food in many households, including my own – we have potatoes 2-3 times a week. I’m no nutritionist but I do know that potatoes can be healthy for us if cooked and consumed properly and of course in moderation. Our go-to for potatoes is always this baked potato recipe below; it’s healthy, easy and taste amazing!

When preparing potatoes, they will always be healthier if they aren’t fried or microwaved. Which leads to baking or grilling, which isn’t convenient and quick but so much healthier. This recipe only calls for potatoes, sea salt, pepper and olive oil – no need for butter, cream or cheese.

Best Baked Potatoes – Step by Step Instructions

Turn on your oven to 350°F.

Grab a size appropriate baking dish and drizzle or spray olive oil on the bottom. Wash and cut your potatoes in half and place face down onto the olive oiled pan.

Drizzle or spray each potato with more olive oil, then sprinkle with sea salt and ground pepper over the potatoes.
Place the dish into the preheated oven and bake for 30-45 minutes, until the fork goes in easily.

Serve warm.

These potatoes will just melt in your mouth, hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!

These would be a great side with Meat Loaf, German Beef Roulade, Turkish Chicken and/or Steak Marinade!

*Yukon or red potatoes are the best choice for this recipe, but any will do. You want to make 1-2 small potatoes per person, depending on the appetite of the person.

* To Grill them: grab foil, spray with olive oil and either half the pieces or keep them full. Spray with more olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Wrap with foil and place in a preheated grill and cook for 45-60 minutes.

Have you ventured to a playground yet?

This has been the longest we've ever been away from a playground, even during winter we'd go at least once a week! She asks daily if we can go play and I always have to say "No, the germs" so this morning I decided to tell her yes and give it a try. Our city opened up playgrounds a couple weeks ago and I thought that was insane. But I just couldn't tell her no anymore. Thankfully we had the playground to ourselves and it was perfect!

Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!
