My Recipe Notes on Oven Baked Potatoes:
1. It’s your choice here, either to leave the skins on or peel them off.
2. Adjust salt as per your taste.
3. You can use even Black Pepper powder instead of white pepper.
4. Use Olive oil only to get a better taste or else you can use vegetable oil or butter.
5. You can open the oven door after every 20 minutes and flip potatoes so that both sides bake well. It will prevent potatoes from browning on one side where they touch the oven rack.
6. Sprinkle few drops of olive oil after you take potatoes out from oven.
7. In between baking pierce those with a tooth pick or with a fork for checking its doneness.
8. The outside skin will be dry and the inside part will be soft and will turn to a fluffy texture when potatoes are done.
9. For baking potatoes, place the baking tray in the middle rack.
10. Don’t use the sprouted potatoes as it can be toxic.
11. Potatoes of same shape and size are better for baking as those will get cook evenly and fast.
