Salt-Crusted Baked Potatoes

I am back from a much needed week at the beach :)

I thought I would post this recipe first. I love a nice baked potato with a salt crust. Since I love them, I thought you might also, and I had failed miserably on the first attempt this week at the beach.

The first time I did them, I wrapped them in foil, and put them in the oven. The steam inside the foil made the salt boil out of the foil. They still tasted great, with a nice salty flavor. But, I wanted that nice salt crust on the potato, like you get at a restaurant. I love the crispy skin it makes, you eat the skin and all!

You can use this same recipe with Red Potatoes, just adjust the baking time. Red Potatoes don't take as long to cook. I like to add a little of my fresh rosemary from my herb garden :)

Hope you had a great week and enjoy these delicious Salt Crusted Baked Potatoes! I would love to hear from you any comments, recipes, or suggestions. Enjoy!
