The perfect baked potato should be salty on the outside and snow white and fluffy on the inside. You can also use russet burbank or spunta potatoes for this recipe. Pierce the skin of each potato to prevent it from splitting while in the oven. Wrapping the potatoes completely in foil results in a soft skin after baking. A lightly oiled potato rolled in sea salt will result in a crisp crunchy skin. Each of these toppings is enough for eight potatoes.
