Mini Baked Potatoes

Sara recently started serving small baked potatoes instead of standard giant russets because they're more flavorful and look nicer on the plate. Try them and they just might become your new favorite side.

Preheat oven to 400°. Pierce potatoes several times with fork, place on baking sheet, and bake 30 to 40 minutes or until tender and crisp.
