    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    For those those who want a perfect baked potato but do not want to wait for an hour! The cooking times is for one potato you will need to increase time if you are making more than one --- adjust the ingredients to taste, this is perfect for a beginner cook! :)

      One yukon gold - wash & poke holes - 2.5 min, flip, then 1.5 min (4 min total) - perfect. We have a newer (i.e., stronger) microwave, hence the lower times. Thanks so much, Kittencal - poking & flipping them was the secret!
