Make Baked Potatoes Fast With Spud Spikes

Baked potatoes are an easy meal, especially while camping. But the downfall is the amount of time it can take to cook a potato. We’ve found a solution that allows you to make baked potatoes fast. Spud Spikes. Just stick the food-grade stainless steal spike through the potato lengthwise and cook as you normally would. This spike conducts heat in to the center of the potato allowing it to cook much faster. The Spud Spike can be used on the grill or even while grilling over the campfire.

How To Make Baked Potatoes Fast

When inserted into a potato, Spud Spikes help produce well-baked potatoes (crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle) in less time because they transfer your oven’s heat to the center—allowing the potatoes to cook outward; no more potatoes with soft skins, hard insides or uneven temperatures throughout.

What makes Spud Spikes different or any better than a nail? Food-grade Spud Spikes are made of 100% stainless steel, a safe heat conductor, while aluminum baking nails are too short to be effective, may dry out the potato and raise health concerns.

To create first rubb or spray the potato skins with olive oil. Once the Spud Spikes have been inserted, sprinkle the oiled potatoes with Spud Spikes Gourmet Original Blend Potato Skin Rub and Everyday Seasoning.

The best part of it all is that Spud Spikes and Spud Spikes seasonings can be used with more than potatoes to help bring a whole meal together; the seasonings add a zesty flavor to meat, steamed or grilled vegetables, corn on the cob and more, while the actual Spud Spikes can also be used when grilling brats or sausages on the BBQ.
