Cook these Quick Baked Potatoes in your microwave for soft, delicious potatoes with crispy skins in less than a half an hour.
- 6 small russet potatoes (6-8 ounces each)
- Start potatoes in Microwave: Turn oven to 425ºF. Wash the potatoes, then poke each one three times with a fork. Microwave the potatoes on high for 6 minutes.
- Finish potatoes in oven: Transfer the potatoes to the oven. (I put them right on the oven rack). Bake for 20 minutes, or until the skin feels crisp when a potato is squeezed. Remove from the oven and immediately slice the top of the potato to let the steam escape. Squeeze from the ends to fluff up the inside a bit, and serve.
