Perfect Baked Potatoes
1

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Scrub your potatoes with cool water and a soft brush, pat dry. Pierce with a fork or knife several times (this will help release the steam that builds up inside the potato as it cooks.) You need to do this so it doesn't explode in your oven. Rub potatoes liberally with oil/butter. Season all sides with garlic salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Lay them on a sheet pan of baking dish. Bake for about 45-60 minutes (depends on the size of your potatoes) The skin should pierce easily with a fork and the potato insides soft and fluffy.

2

Set the broiler to low heat. Let the potatoes cool a bit and transfer them to a work surface. With the flat edge of a knife pressed up against the potato give it a firm push until the potato smashes.

3

Top each smashed potato with some parmesan cheese. Finish with fresh herbs and smoked paprika.

4

Serve with sour cream, butter, chili, you name it!
