Baked Potato

Did a baked potato with fixings and asparagus last night. Got out some sharp cheddar cheese, scallions, butter, garlic, and sour cream.











Just before the potato was done I fried the asparagus in butter and garlic.





Let it sit while building the potato, start with butter and sour cream





Add scallions





Some cheddar cheese





Top off with chili and enjoy

That looks really good!! I have a question. When you bake the potatoes, do you use foil or just put them in the oven on the rack or a baking sheet? I have seen recipes call for both. My mom always wrapped them with foil but when I make my twice baked potatoes, I just rub them with vegetable oil and cook on a rack in the oven.

I always cook them without foil. The skin gets crispy.
Looks good John.

I hear Bill TGG foils his potato.

I just rub with oil, throw in on the rack. Sweet Potato doesn't get the oil treatment.

Thanks for the tips! I am going to try the olive oil and kosher salt. I do prefer the unfoiled ones I've done lately since trying the twice baked potatoes.

"Next time, put a coating of olive oil on the asparagus and cook it on the grill!!"
