How to Make Baked Potatoes?
The secret to extra soft on the inside and crispy on the outside potatoes is rubbing the potatoes with a generous amount of olive oil before baking.
I try to scoop as much filling as possible to make the potato skins super thin. If you want your potato skins to be even crispier just coat the skins with more olive oil and bake for 5 minutes while you mix the fillings.
