When we have steak for dinner, I like to make baked potatoes to go with it. I have tested many different methods for making them, and I think this is the best way to bake potatoes. If you do not want to heat up your house by turning on the oven, you can half cook it in the microwave and stick it on the grill to finish it.

As far as I am concerned, baked potatoes are merely a vehicle for sour cream. My garlic herbed sour cream is my absolute favorite on a hot baked potato. My garden is bursting with fresh herbs right now. This is where I picked these herbs. I was so excited that I actually grew something.

Can you make these ahead?

Absolutely! Baked potatoes store well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, so you can definitely save some time by making a big batch to use all week long. To prevent the potatoes from becoming soggy, the best way to reheat them is to wrap them individually in aluminum foil. Then, simply reheat them in the oven at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes.

Of course, you can always reheat them in the microwave as well. If you choose this method, be sure to reheat at 50 percent power. Otherwise, the potatoes may become too dry.
