Step 2: Wash your russet (baking) potato.
Step 3: Poke it several times with a fork.
Step 4: Place your potato directly on the rack in the oven.
Step 5: Set your timer for 45 minutes.
Step 6: Do something productive for 45 minutes.
Step 7: Season to taste, add butter or sour cream (chives would be lovely).
Step 8: Consume.
That's it. Baked potato. Done. Yes, it takes a good chunk of time, but plan ahead, and let the potato do your caloric refuel for you. (Nutritional cliff-notes: about 160 calories, 37g carbohydrates, 4g dietary fiber, 2g sugars, 4g protein, 10% daily iron, and 28% daily vitamin C per potato, skin and all.)
Incidentally, in a healthier-than-thou battle, sour cream always wins over butter. Regard:
