"Recipe is great if you have a lot of time to spare. My mother taught me to make potatoes fast and they come out just the same. 1.Poke a bunch of holes on each potatoe with a fork (to make sure they d..." See moreont explode) 2. Put in microwave for 10 minutes (3-8 potatoes) (7 minutes for 1-2 potatoes) 3. With an oven mit take the potatoes out of the microwave and wrap in tinfoil individually and place in a preheated oven at 375. 4. Bake 20 minutes or until soft and squishey. (You can check the potatoes with an oven mit on to see if they are cooked and squishey enough to eat. 5. Garnish with what ever you like!"
"Good recipe for beginning cooks. Variations are to wrap potato in foil for a tender jacket, or to rub Pam or Olive Oil on potato jacket and sprinkle seasonings and/or sea salt on the outside for a tas..." See morety and tough jacket. You can also bake at 400 degrees for 40 - 60 minutes. Baking time will vary on size and number of potatoes."
"Nice recipe when you have 1.5 hrs to bake them. My version is similar, but much quicker and the potato is fluffy and never 'hard'. I cut the ends off the potato and prick with a fork, then I microwave..." See more them first, but ONLY until they are tender but still very firm when you insert a sharp knife. Then I bake them about 15-20 mins. at 350* until skins are dry and the potato is very tender. Then the KEY to my famous baked potatoes is this: *After removing from the oven take each one and squish it a bit by lightly squeezing it between a towel because they are so hot! The result is the potato becomes crumbly and fluffy and then lather on the toppings! People LOVE my bakers. Try it! (By the way I normally HATE microwaved potatoes, but by baking these after starting in the microwave they are superb!!)."
