Often I would like to serve baked potatoes with meat I have cooked in the oven. If I am cooking the meat at a lower oven temp - 325F, for example, how can I cook the potatoes?
Nothing like good ol’ meat and Idaho potatoes to satisfy a hungry bunch! The two can be readily combined, either in a combined dish – or separately as you describe. Typically, a 400°F oven will bake a potato in about an hour. As for combining in a 325°F oven, the potatoes will still bake up fine – just allow more time for the potatoes to cook. Any way you choose, baked potatoes will be done when a fork pierces the potato easily and the interior flesh reaches 210°F.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
