We’re constantly on the lookout for tips, tricks and hacks for getting the perfect jacket potato. How to cook a jacket potato is a heavily contested subject with everyone having their own way of doing it.

But we have to admit, we get the feeling Martha Stewart knows a thing or two about baking potatoes, so we trust this tip from her.

Martha shared her hack for the fluffiest, most delicious jacket potato on Instagram, and it’s so simple, everyone can do it.

The key to Martha’s perfect baked potato is to smash it. Yup – you heard… smash the potato.

Martha says that if you smashed your baked potato on your kitchen counter when it comes out of the oven, it will give the inside a lovely fluffy texture.

We told you it was easy…

Martha also recommends trying a different kind of potato to your usual baking potato. Her potato of choice? The almighty Yukon Gold. She bakes it at 160°C for 90 minutes, which is a lower temperature than you’d usually bake a potato at, but because she does it for longer, it gets cooked perfectly all the way through.

Her last tip is to “open with fingers and top with butter. Salt and pepper. And creme fraiche or sour cream. Chopped dill or parsley is a nice touch. Eat piping hot.”

You don’t have to ask us twice to add butter AND sour cream…
