I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Brine Baked Potaotes

I urge you to try this. It really does make for a wonderful baked potato. Crunchy on the outside and so soft on the inside. Just put a little butter on it or load it up, either way delicious.

(serves 6)

*6 medium
*1 cup kosher salt
*1 tablespoons garlic salt
*1 tablespoons onion powder
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon seasoned black pepper

~Mix 1 cup kosher salt in 8 cups water.
~Place potatoes in salt water, making sure that they are completely submerged.
~Let sit on counter for 4-8 hours.
~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
~In a small bowl, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, & seasoned pepper.
~Remove potatoes from brine.
~Gently rinse off salt water.
~Liberally coat potatoes with seasoning mixture
~Place potatoes on a wire rack in the middle of your oven. (I put the rack on a cookie sheet).
~Bake for 45 minutes.
~Do not poke or prick potato. It will be soft to the touch when it's done.
~Let the potato set for 5 minutes before eating.
