Preheat oven for 425 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil.
Wash potatoes well and dry completely with a towel. (I like to use my flour sack towel for this)
Place potatoes on the foil lined baking sheet.
Pick each a few times with a fork.
Drizzle a little olive oil over each potato. Rub the oil over each potato and sprinkle each side with salt. Sprinkle with pepper also if desired.
Bake at 425 degrees for 45-60 minutes until soft.
