How To: Bake a potato

Bake a potato

To bake a potato start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Pierce each potato with a knife and then bake them in the oven for one hour. To get the potato done even faster try using the microwave. Take the potato and cut a length wise wedge out. The wedge cut allows the steam to escape as the potato is heating in the microwave. Do not cover the potato because you don't want to trap the steam. Cook the potato on high for 8-9 minutes. After cooking the potato top them off with a healthy topping. Spread, pico di gio, avocado, green onions, low fat cheese, broccoli, grilled vegetables, chopped fresh spinach, fat free sour cream, plain yogurt, cottage cheese with chives or sun dried tomatoes make great toppings.
