Loaded Baked Potato – You Suck at Cooking (episode 77)


‘kay, I’ve got the potometer fired up, and we’re just gonna find ourselves a nice, juicy… *BING* *punch* Got ’em! ♪ You suck at cooking, yeah you totally suck! ♪♪ If your ground-punching game isn’t that strong, you can also just buy these at the store. aaand you could let your potatoes say goodbye to each other… [sad piano music] Except potatoes don’t have the ability to talk, so let’s stop fooling around. Now that you’ve got your potatoes, it’s time to decide what form of baking you’re gonna use. One option is micro baking. If someone tries to condescend to you for using a Micro-Bake Oven, just say, “I’d like to see you operate a Micro—” [Micro-Bake Oven: beep, beep-beep, beep] Beginner’s luck. The truth is, micro baking is super easy. Put your potato on a plate, set it for 10 minutes on high, and your potato should come out perfect. Mmm. Another option is aqua baking. Some people don’t want to aqua bake because they’re worried their potatoes will get wet. Which is silly, because potatoes are waterproof. See? But because they’re waterproof, aqua baking takes a long time. Aaand also it’s called boiling, and that’s not why we’re here today. Baking with the slow cooker is super simple. Put your potato inside, put the lid on, set the timer for 6 years, then go away and raise a family. By the time your kid is in first grade, you’ll have a nice delicious meal ready. Baking baking, the method I’m gonna use today, is what humans have been doing for decades, ever since the discovery of the onion in Bancroft, Kentucky in the 1960s. Baking baking takes a long time because potatoes are airproof. But before you get started, you’re gonna need to prepare your potatoes. First, we’re gonna give them a nice, scrubby wash. Then you’re gonna want to stab your potato with a fork, which is done by jamming your fork inside and easily pulling it out with a pair of vise grips. You can also tap it in with a hammer, you can let gravity do the work for you, you can save time by stabbing with four forks at once, or if you play pro ball like me, you can do this. If you don’t stab your potato first, the steam can’t escape and this is what happens to the potato. [BOOM] [coughing] This can also happen with the micro baker, so, *ahem* don’t forget those fork holes. Now we’ll just slather the potato with Olive Flavored Stab Soothing Balm™, sprinkle with some Freshlock Salt™, and give these guys four free tickets to the Gravitron. Throw them on a pan, Undoh’s on four hundoh, and we’re gonna throw those in for around 45 minutes. Now we’ve had them in for the correct amount of time, but; the fork is the ultimate determiner of doneness. Take your fork and whack the side. If you hear it resonate, then congratulations: you own a tuning fork. But if you take a real fork and it slides in easily to the center, you know it’s done. If you encounter resistance, put it in for another 10 minutes. Now you’re gonna want to saw it open… and then press the ends together, until it opens like a piping hot 70’s change purse. [suggestive 1970s music] Now we’re gonna shovel the inside out, and put them in a bowl. Okay, that’s ridiculous. Let’s use a proper-sized shovel. If the potato hole doesn’t come up perfect, just throw the potato in the garbage and start over— Just kidding. Now look at this. What does this remind you of? It reminds you of nothing. When the Greeks first discovered the potato, they had to invent the number “zero” in order to describe the amount of flavor inside it. Which is where zero gets its shape from. And that’s why we load potatoes with anything and everything we can find so we can try to forget that we’re eating something so flavorless, it’s like staring into the abyss. And the great thing about it, is you can put whatever the **ck you want in there. Why’d you censor that? Thank you. So this first one, we’re gonna throw in some butter. Some cheddar. Some sour cream. Some salt. Some pepper pepper pepper. Some bacon. Some chives. The second one, we’re gonna put in some veggie bullion, some cumin, some cheddar cheese, some cream cheese, some broccoli. Then wang jangle everything together, until there is no trace of nothing. And then we’ll shovel those insides back in there, (so hungry) then we’ll top them with some more cheddar, some more bacon on these guys, some more chives on the other ones. And then we’re gonna get these m***** f****** back in— Oh, come on! Thank you. We’re gonna throw these in the undoh for another 10 minutes to reheat the insides and melt all that cheese [whispering] Or you can just keep a very careful eye on them until you think it’s time, and then take it out based on your great observations and intuition. Alright. So these babies are done, topped with some more sour cream and chives. And while you’re admiring how good these came out, it’s important to make sure that any of your raw leftover potatoes don’t see your decked out loaded potatoes. They’re already struggling with tasting like nothing. They don’t need you making them feel more insecure. I’d like to thank Audible for sponsoring this video. I love Audible because they’ve really gotten me back into books. It’s my favorite way to multitask, especially when cleaning up this s***— Seriously? Thank You. Audible has the largest selection of audiobooks in the known universe. I just listened to “Born Standing Up” by Steve Martin. He talks about the grueling years of developing his act before he finally made it as a stand-up comic and film star. It’s raw, heartbreaking, funny, but more than anything, he’s an awesome writer, and I could not put this book down. You can get that book, or any other book you want for free when you start a 30-day trial. Go to audible.com/ysac or text “YSAC” to 500500 to get started. That’s audible.com/ysac or text “YSAC” to 500500. [whispering] And have a great day. Bye. ♪ You suck at NOTHING, yeah you totally suck. ♪♪

  1. Did these yesterday, they were great, but I had a lot of spare filling, so I kept it in the fridge. Today I was feeling hungry and meal was far from ready, so I decided to pick the fillings out of the fridge and spread them over some bread. That shit was great! Straight out of the refrigerator, so no extra cooking needed.
    If you have spare fillings this is a great way to consume them!

  4. fun fact: The greeks did not discover the potato,
    In 1828 Greece' s first Head of State after the revolution of 1821 returned from a career abroad and found a country that four centuries of Turkish occupation had left bankrupt and hungry. He saw potatoes as the answer, and left piles of them for Greek farmers to take away and plant in their empty fields. The farmers, however, suspecting some trick and would not touch them. So he placed the piles of unwanted potatoes under armed guard. The farmers now suspected the potatoes were a delicacy reserved for the rich, and began to steal them while the guards pretended not to notice. Soon, not a single one was left. 🙂
