Perfect Baked Potato

Wash and dry potatoes.
Rub well with oil.
Prick several times.
Sprinkle coarse salt heavily on the potatoes.
Bake at 400 for 90 minutes.
Fluff up and add butter, cheese, sour cream, salt, bacon bits etc.
I usually bake a couple extra to sautee in butter with onions and green peppers the next day. Dont add anything to these, just keep plain.
