  • 2 medium russet potatoes, washed and patted dry
  • 2 tsp vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Prep the potatoes by poking holes in the skin, (5 to 7 pokes), then coat each potato with shortening.
  • Poke the fork into the potato and hold it over your sink, then sprinkle garlic salt and oregano on all of the potato.
  • Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 60 minutes. Check doneness with a fork or paring knife. They should easily penetrate the flesh of the potato. If there is some resistance yet, bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot with toppings of your choice.
