Baked Potatoes With Low-Calorie Topping

Scrub potatoes well with a brush so that the skins may be eaten.
Prick with a fork to allow steam to escape during baking and to
prevent bursting. (Optional: rub with a little fat to soften skin.)

Bake in hot oven (425 °F); potatoes of medium size will take from 50 to 60 minutes.
Or, if other foods are to be cooked in a moderate oven (350°F to 375°F), potatoes will take from 60 to 80 minutes.

Remove potatoes from the oven as soon as they are done. Slash an X in the top
side of each potato. Force the soft inner portion up through the opening to let the steam escape; this keeps the potatoes dry and mealy.
