    Dustbunni's Note:

    I tried this technique for cooking potatoes when I'd intended to make twice baked potatoes. I put the potatoes in the oven, got sidetracked, and forgot to turn the oven on. Ooops. Turned into a delicious accident. My husband loves these and calls them fried baked potatoes.
