I have always looked for the perfect way to make a baked potato. I know, I know. It is something so simple but no matter what I tried it never came out right. I would bake them in the oven and either it was over cooked or under cooked. Most importantly it just took way to much of my time! I cut the time down by trying them in my microwave, they cooked perfectly and fast.
My microwave has a potato setting so it makes it very easy to throw together a side dish for dinner. My kids love to add their own personal touches by adding their own toppings to their baked potato as well.
I like to finish them off in my oven for a crispier salty skin. You do not have to add this step but I think they come out better and just as good as any restaurant.
