I appreciate short-cut recipes to speed up cooking time and this worked very well. I made one large 12-ounce baking potato to split between two people. 10 minutes in my microwave the potato would be completely cooked, so I only nuked for 5 minutes and then popped into the oven. Made for Spring 2014 Pick A Chef.


  1. Turn oven on, selecting 400 degrees.
  2. Wash potatoes with water.
  3. Dry potatoes with paper towel.
  4. Stab each potato 3 or 4 times with tines of fork.
  5. Microwave potatoes on high for 10 minutes.
  6. Place potatoes in oven for 20 to 30 minutes to crisp outer skin.
