My family and I love baked potatoes! The perfect baked potato has crisp golden skin on the outside and is pure white and fluffy on the inside. This recipe, that I use all the time, creates just that. The the skin as yummy as the inside!

Great Baked Potato

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 45 – 60 minutes

Ready In: 65 minutes


  • Baking type potatoes, like Russet
  • Olive Oil / Vegetable Oil
  • McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning


  1. Adjust the rack in your oven to the middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Rinse and scrub each potato under running water, as we will be eating the skins of these perfect potatoes. Dry each potato thoroughly.
  3. Pierce each deeply with a fork or sharp knife four times on each side at approximately 1″ intervals. This will allow steam to escape or the potato may explode during baking.
  4. Rub the potato with olive oil or vegetable oil over the skins.
  5. Roll the potatoes in McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning before bake. Place seasoning onto a small plate. Roll potatoes lightly in the seasoning.
  6. Bake for 45 – 60 minutes at 400 degrees F.
