Outback Steakhouse is known for their delicious steaks, but their signature baked potatoes are one of the most popular items served.

However, thanks to 12 Tomatoes, you don’t even have to leave your house to enjoy the unique flavor of this spud dish. All you will need is 6 russet potatoes, 1/2 cup of extra-virgin olive oil and two tablespoons of kosher salt.

You can reduce the amount of salt used if you would like, but this amount is what Outback uses. You can also experiment with using different types of potatoes, like red potatoes. However ,the taste will be different if you alter these ingredients. You probably already have these simple ingredients in your pantry.

While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees, rinse each potato with cool water and pat dry with a paper towel. Take another paper towel and saturate it with the olive oil. Rub each one of the potatoes until they are covered, but not dripping.

Arrange the six potatoes neatly on a baking sheet and evenly sprinkle with the two tablespoons of kosher salt. Bake the potatoes for 50 to 55 minutes or until they are fork tender.

Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove them from the oven and serve immediately, as they are best hot and fresh from the oven.

“I work at outback everything was spot on we use vegetable oil and whipped butter with chives bacon shredded cheddar jack and white cheddar cheese with a sour cream topped before everything.’

“I use to work for Outback. I remember prepping the potatoes. Hands covered in oil, massaging it into the skin (great way to soften your hands). Potatoes rolled and covered in kosher salt. Trays of these potatoes on a rack waiting to go into the ovens. Yum, they made great meals on their own. What potatoes didn’t sell that day were turned into the potato soup of tomorrow.”

“Omg thank you so much for putting me on to this recipe First time ever and they where by far what I expected them I toped them off with chillie and Ragu cheese sauce Incredible ¡¡thanks!!!”

“I do this on my grill, except I use melted butter, and Coarse Sea Salt, wrap them in foil slap them on the grill, takes about 20-25 mins on the top rack of my grill (turning them twice). perfect every time…. I am going to try it your way this winter…. 🙂 ”

“My potatoes made following these directions turned out 4 stars (one from each of my family members who loved them), and another star from me. Thanks for the 5 star twist on the ordinary.”

“You know I felt the same way before I made them like this. I think this method is good, and easy. Until I tried this I really thought that piercing them was the only way to go. I am glad you enjoyed the video and it worked out well for you.”
