How to Make Baked Potatoes With Crispy Skin
There are three key things to remember if you want to make baked potatoes with extra-crispy skin:
- Bake your potatoes in the oven. Other cooking methods won't get the crunchy exterior you're looking for.
- Use high heat. The best baked potatoes are cooked in a 425-degree oven.
- Brush the potatoes with melted butter halfway through cooking.
To make baked potatoes with crispy skin, clean the potatoes, prick them with a fork, and bake them at 425 degrees for 25 minutes. Then, brush them with melted butter and sprinkle them with salt. Bake the potatoes 25 minutes more and they'll be ready to eat.
