Outback Steakhouse Baked Potato

Download video Channel: Stephanie Manley

You can make a baked potato like the Outback Steakhouse. It is not a mystery on how to get the lovely salt crust on the outside of your baked potato any longer. All you need is baked potatoes, vegetable oil, and some kosher salt. I'll show you how to make this restaurant favorite at home.

This is Stephanie Manley with copykat.com. I'm going to show you how you

can make a baked potato that's just like the Outback Steakhouse, with that

wonderful salty crust on the outside, so let's get started and solve this

mystery.

We're going to start out with baked potatoes, now use as many as you like.

Now I'm using some that are roughly the size of my hand. I'm guessing

that's about a half pound. You're going to need some kosher salt, which you

can buy at your regular grocery store. If you haven't tried it, it's a

great ingredient to use for salt, lots of flavor.

We're going to use a vegetable oil. It doesn't matter. You can use just

vegetable oil, sunflower, safflower, corn oil. I would stay away from olive

oil and peanut oil, simply because I think that can add a little extra

flavor that I'm not quite looking for here.

Now you don't need to pierce your baked potato with a fork or a knife or

anything. You're just going to dip a paper towel into a small container and

just rub the whole potato down with oil. We're doing this so the salt

crust will stick on it, and this does another thing, as well.

It keeps the potato nice and light and fluffy in the inside because we're

not losing any of the potato's natural water, so it works out well.

So by now you've preheated your oven to about 350 degrees. It's heating

away and it's getting ready for us.

The next thing we're going to do is we're just sprinkle on some salt. Now

we're not going to wrap these in foil because this could knock off a

little bit of the salt, so that's it. We're just going to sprinkle it with

salt. Then we're going to pop it into our 350-degree oven.

I'm going to bake these until they're done, and for me that takes about an

hour, so probably close to an hour for you as well. Go head, put these in

the oven, and then take them back out. Let them cool for a little bit, but

you can see the salty crust has remained.

These are wonderful, light, and fluffy on the inside, so I want to show you

what this looks like a little bit closer. How fabulous is that? That's

perfect. I love the underside because it browns just a little bit. It gets

a little big crispy on the bottom. I don't think there's anything much

better than that.

So here we go, here's our baked potato. I'm going to go ahead and cut this

open. You can see again, the salt stays right on the top, to make it so

delicious. Now I'm going to ahead and prepare this baked potato. Now, of

course, it's still screaming hot, so use a towel. Use something other than

your fingers at this point, because burning yourself before dinner is never

fun.

What comes next? Well, of course, we're going to top our baked potato with

our favorite ingredients of our choice. I'm a butter and sour cream, kind

of girl, but as you can see these are easy to do. You just need a

baked potato, a little bit of vegetable oil. Again, your choice is fine,

and some kosher salt.

That's like the potato, the non-negotiable ingredient, and we're going to

bake these. They take about an hour in a 350-degree oven, and that's it. How

wonderful is that? So here we go, we're topping our baked potato with a

little bit of butter, sour cream, and chives, and that's how you can make a

baked potato, just like they do at the Outback Steakhouse. Don't forget to
