The classic potato is always the perfect side for your steak or protein main dish. Don’t forget to eat the skin.
Preheat your oven to 450ºF. Scrub the skin of your russet potatoes and dry with paper towel. Poke the potatoes several times all over with a fork. Rub lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake directly on the middle rack for 45 – 60 minutes, depending on the size and number of potatoes. Let stand for a few minutes, then cut down the middle and load with your favorite toppings and serve!
