They were crispy and perfect

The potatoes were simple but easy to make and turned out perfect. I washed and dried the potatoes earlier in the day as one of the other reviews suggested. Will use this recipe for all my baked potatoes in the future.
Simple and delicious!

Good soft and on time everyone loved them
I really liked it!! Instead of using salt and pepper on the outside of the potatoes, I used Tony Chacharee’s Seasoning. I’ll definitely be doing this again

I've been doing this for years and it is by far the best way. But, be sure you wash and prep the taters hours before. You can't get super crispy skins unless they are bone dry before you rub the oil on them.
