    Wow, I saw first!!!! I'll take hat #18, Have to keep from getting a
    sunburned scalp.

    I may add, I rarely order baked potato in a restaurant. Many taste steamed,
    not baked, inside a foil wrap. I poke a vent hole before baking.

    My wife likes sour cream, I prefer only butter and a touch of salt.

    two question was too short! a good baked potato is washed, dried, poked
    then baked in a hot oven without foil and skin is crunchy or firmer, not
    fired crunchy, well, you know, not soggy like those wrapped ones, then
    gotta eat the skins!!! apply real butter, salt, pepper and a slog of
    soured cream!

    Only time I wrap baked potatoes in foil these days (thanks to advice
    from many folks here) is when we cook them amongst the coals on our
    out-door grill (and yes, I do poke a few holes in the foil); that way,
    we can still eat the skins because they don't get burnt beyond
    consumption, IMO. However, when I bake potatoes in the oven, I rub them
    with a little oil and salt - no foil. Family enjoys 'em that way and so
    do I.

    LOL! I've never thought to call the inside of a potato "flesh".
    That's kind of creepy. In any case, I eat the insides first and if
    I'm full - I save the skin to make a cheesy potato skin snack (or
    lunch) later.

    Do people really limit themselves to only one of the choices? You can
    make the skin crispy or soft or chewy, dry or oiled, flavored or
    neutral--why should you not make it different each time? -aem

    Forgot tub margarine, which is what I used most recently (Smart
    Balance). It squooshes over the potato better straight out of the
    fridge.

    I do similar ... usually the potatoes I bake are on the large size,
    so I don't eat the whole thing. I eat as much of the insides with
    my meal as I feel like, then I wrap up the skins/guts and have
    them buttered for breakfast.

    Not exactly the breakfast of champions, what can I say.

    We were forced to eat the skins, which amounted to eating dirt! I don't
    much like baked potatoes for that reason.

    Doesn't take much to make a picky eater even pickier!!!

    I usually do a combination of oiled, seasoned and wrapped, followed
    by unwrapped since I'm using Yukon golds in a usually low oven (275F
    roasting a large piece of meat). The skins are thinner so they
    crisp quicker, but the long baking would otherwise make them dry
    out.

    Lately I've gone to par-cooking them first in the microwave, then
    finishing them in the toaster oven to crisp them up.

    Works well. :-)

    I like them with just butter and salt. Fluffy stuff first then wrap the
    skin around extra butter and enjoy it for dessert...

    Might I add that I prefer potatoes baked in the oven with crisp skins.
    However, sometimes I am in a hurry and nuke them even if they are
    nowhere near as good. Another way I eat them is to nuke the potatoes,
    remove and mash the flesh, put it back in the skins and then bake in the
    oven au gratin.

    They actually get crispier if you omit the "rub with oil
    " part. Just wash, poke some holes and place in the oven.

    I also agree on never ordering restaurant steamed "baked potatoes"

    Exactly! I don't like it when they are cooked that way. May as well
    microwave it. (ugh)

    > My wife likes sour cream, I prefer only butter and a touch of salt.

    Ditto, Ed. And I like the skin to be crisp.

    Doesn't amount to eating dirt if you wash the potatoes first

    Jill,

    Way back when I think the only one of us who dared wander into the
    kitchen was our sister. She carried a proud aura around about her!

    We were secretly envious!

    Best,

    Andy
