(Sloooow) Baked Potatoes ♥ How Long to Bake a Baked Potato

Doesn't everybody bake potatoes for an hour? But one hour in the oven is just not enough! Here's how long to really bake a baked potato, that is, if you want the potato to turn nutty and soft and super-special: three hours. Three hours is not a typo. It really is "three" full hours. Baked potatoes' skin and flesh are both completely delicious when the potato is slow-baked for a long time.

About August's Recipe CollectionAny guesses how many soup and salad recipes are listed in this seasonal recipe collection? Forty-freaking-two! Yes, 42!
