Loaded Baked Potato
LOADED BAKED POTATO
Texas Roadhouse Copycat Recipe
sea salt or kosher salt (enough to cover potato)
2 large baking potatoes (with the skin on)
Lay out 2 pieces of foil onto a flat surface. The foil should be enough to cover each potato.
Wash potato skins thouroughly and dry them, dip in rendered bacon fat, place the potatoes onto each piece of foil and cover in sea salt. Wrap and bake in a 425 degree oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Make it a loaded potato and top it with sour cream, cheddar cheese, chives, bacon (crumbled), and Mrs. Dash original seasoning for a really great baked potato, or eat it as is. Either way, it's delicious!
