What are the best potatoes to use for baking or jacket potatoes ?

Best Answer
A perfectly baked potato is the ultimate comfort food on a chilly evening, and there are few foods more wholesome and satisfying . We have listed below what potato varieties to use to achieve the perfect finish, from crispy skin to fluffy middle. Our personal preference is for Sebago or Russet Burbank.

In addition to the choice of potato, the topping is every bit as important – see our How to Make The Ultimate Baked Jacket Potato for tips on cooking the potato to perfection and a variety of toppings to choose from.
