In England, what Americans know as baked potatoes are called jacket potatoes. These potatoes feature much crispier exteriors and fluffy interiors. The time to bake a jacket potato in the oven is 50 minutes to an hour at 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Halfway through your cook time, you should turn them around to get an evenly cooked skin and coat them with butter to perfectly crisp up the skin. Your potatoes shouldn’t be covered with foil, as the steam that is created could ruin the texture, but you should poke the potatoes with a fork before putting them in the oven. Whether you call them baked potatoes or jacket potatoes, this type of baked potato recipe makes a great dinner side or can be dressed up as a light meal.
