- 4 Idaho russet baking potatoes
- Unsalted butter
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Wash the potatoes and place them directly on the oven baking rack. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until very tender when pierced with a skewer.
When the potatoes are done, cut them down the middle and squeeze both ends. Place a slice of butter in the middle of the potato, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve hot.
