If you prefer a soft skin, wrap in foil before baking, if not wipe with a little butter or olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and place directly on oven rack for crispy skin.
Bake for 60 minutes or until a fork goes in easily. Larger potatoes will take more time. Sweet potatoes take less time. (Cooking time varies depending on altitude and oven)
Fill with your choice of fillings (choices above), top with generous amounts shredded cheese (except salmon version). Place on cookie sheet and place back in oven until cheese melts.
