In this guide, I'm going to explain to you how to bake a potato in the oven. It's not very hard, and you'll need the most basic of equipment to bake your potato.

Things You Will Need

An oven in decent working conditions (your potato will not bake itself, don't even think about it).
A freakin' potato! or six! (however many potatoes you want to bake, moron)
Some tinfoil, or "aluminum" foil.

Step 1

Ok. To bake your potato, first preheat your oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Wrap your potato in foil.

Step 2

Next, either place your wrapped potatoes on the oven rack, or place them on a baking sheet of some sort. This is just a preference, so that you can carefully remove the baked potatoes from the oven all at once. It really is not too important.

Bake your potato for 1 and a half hours, then remove.

Step 3

Add your fixin's. Sour cream, bacon bits, chives or green onions, and cheddar cheese. This is an amazing baked potato.
You have learned how to bake a potato. You'd better enjoy it! they're really easy to make and nice and filling.

Your baked potato will go great paired with a nice new york steak, or some grilled chicken.

Tips & Warnings

Don't burn your house down.
