Potatoes tend to get a bad rap. Perhaps this is because the potato is typically consumed in the form of greasy fries or chips, or smothered in cheese, sour cream, salt and bacon bits. The real truth about potatoes is, however, that they are really quite good for you. According to The World's Healthiest Foods, potatoes are rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and several forms of free-radical fighting phytonutrients. Baking your potatoes in a roaster oven is an extremely healthy (and easy) way to prepare them. They emerge hot, fluffy and ready to make you just a wee bit healthier.


Step 1

Preheat your roaster oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Wash and scrub your potatoes with a vegetable scrub brush.


Step 3

Pierce each potato once or twice with a fork.


Step 4

Place the roasting rack inside your roaster oven (if your roaster oven so requires). Stack the potatoes on top of each other inside the roaster oven, being careful to not allow the potatoes to touch the sides of the oven.


Step 5

Place the cover on your roaster oven. Bake the potatoes for 60 to 75 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork.
