*Salt and pepper to taste
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

3Bake in oven on middle rack for 1 hour, until potatoes are fork tender.
4Cut potato open. Add butter or margarine into hot potato until melted. Top with sour cream and scatter scallions or chives over. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Try our Horseradish/Mayonnaise Sauce as an alternative to sour cream.
  • To bake potatoes using a microwave oven, scrub potatoes until clean and pat dry. Prick the top of each potato several times with the tines of a fork. Microwave on high until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from microwave and wrap in aluminum foil with the shiny side toward the potato. Keep wrapped until ready to serve.
