It has been awhile since I have posted a Quick Tip on my website. I use to write this type of article  frequently. Quick Tips are little things that I have found that have made my life easier, that I like sharing with my readers. Today is no different, because I have found a quick tip that makes baking potatoes just a little bit easier.

This weekend I was in the process of recreating my “Seafood Stuffed Baked Potatoes” so I could place the recipe on my website.

Making the “Seafood Stuffed” part of this recipe was easy. It was getting the “Baked Potatoes” part to cooperate that I found to be a problem. They either came out overcooked or they were too hard from being undercooked. It was a complete nightmare. After spending about an hour online, I have finally compiled the easiest way to make a perfectly fluffed baked potato.

  1. The first step is to wash the potatoes off thoroughly. I know, this may seem like a no brainer, but you would be shocked to know how many people don’t actually rewash their veggies after buying them from the grocery store.
  2. Next, start a pot of boiling water and boil your potatoes for ten minutes. When I first found this tip online, I was kind of skeptical. I wanted a “baked” potato and not a “mashed” potato, but I went with it.
  3. While your potato is boiling, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Yes, we are going to use the oven after boiling the potatoes. Yes, I know you are thinking “ummm, okay.” Believe me, just go along.
  4. After the potatoes have boiled for ten minutes, bake them in the oven for 30 minutes. Don’t keep it in there any more or any less.
Once 30 minutes have passed you will have a perfectly fluffed baked potato!

I am SO glad that I found this tip online. My potato came out perfectly! Do you have a common problem around the house that you need a solution too? Leave it in the comments and I will feature it in an upcoming Quick Tips article.
