I found this worked and I got a crispy skin on my potato (which I wanted) by baking it in the oven for about 20 minutes instead of 15 and turning the temp up to 375 after 10 minutes. I also rinsed them with water as suggested both before microwaving and before putting them in the oven, and I think that helped, but they need a slightly higher temp than the recipe says if you like the skin crispy.
This is how I make them & they are FANTASTIC .. I have gotten many compliments on them as well as been asked to make them for a friend's dinner party! YOU WILL ENJOY THESE!
Simple and good. I baked mine for about 20 minutes to get the skin crispy. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.
I microwaved for 4 minutes and baked in the oven 15 minutes. The potato was done and the skin was soft, but I don't care for crispy skin on my baked potato so this was just right for me. Thanks for a very easy method of making baked potatoes.
This worked for a quick lunch, but the texture definitely stays softer, the way it does when you just microwave the potatoes. I was hoping the skin would be crisp after being baked- I wonder if baking at a higher temp would work? Thanks anyway.
