    Moonshadow_Girl's Note:

    From the Good Eats episode: This Spud's for you. I was looking for information on how long to bake potatoes in the oven and came across this basic recipe from Alton Brown. Perfect potatoes every time! I wanted to include it here so I can add it to my Cookbook.

      Absolutely amazing - I have always loved baked potatoes in restaurants but never could achieve the same result at home. My potatoes were always too dry or too moist on the outside - the insides were always a surprise. This recipe turns out perfect potatoes every time - better than a restaurant. I put some white truffle oil in with the canola and that was soooo good. Thanks for posting.
