Last night I decided to make my twice baked potatoes. So, I scrubbed my 2 regular Idaho baking potatoes and poked a fork in each one. I had the oven at 350 degrees and put them directly on the rack. Normally I would just do this in my little toaster oven, but I already had the oven heated as I was slow baking some ribs earlier. Oh, how I wish I had. It would have been a smaller area to clean. As they seemed to be happily baking away in the oven we heard a muffled boom. I thought, oh that's the oven heating, you know how it can occasionally make sounds? Then I heard it again and Rich said - what was that?? That's when I opened the oven and discovered that my potatoes had EXPLODED. What the hell? Has anyone ever had this happen? I really have no idea. Anyway, hilariously enough of the potato had remained in the skin so I was able to complete my twice baked- once exploded potatoes - I just had to bake them in a pan instead of their skins.
