Mashed, fried or baked — potatoes, in any form, make for the best comfort food. They’re like Hodor of the culinary world —warm, fluffy and absolutely dependable.

YES. They are the maligned for the amount of carbs but think of it as this way — would you rather watch Game of Thrones without Hodor just to avoid the bitter end. No, right?
Even if we take the carb factor into account, baked potatoes are an exceptionally healthy low calorie, high fibre food containing antioxidants that offer protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer (minus the cheese and cream toppings.)

If you like us live for the days when you can dig into an oven-hot creamy from inside, crispy from outside baked potato then read on to find out a sure shot way to get just that EVERY TIME. Yes, no hard sides and no burnt outsides.

Bloomin’ Baked Potato Recipe

The key to getting a perfectly done baked potato is to make small cuts in the shape of a blooming flower. This way, the skin stays crispy while leaving the potato inside creamy and soft.

Here is a step by step guide, as shown by Larson.
