      The only thing I did differently was to finish the potatoes in the oven. It only take about 10 minutes for the second baking and it makes them almost as good as using the oven the whole time.

      A great dinnertime solution, I'll be adding this to my rotation of regular meals that I make frequently! I feed picky eaters, and this is a recipe that will consistently make everyone happy with a minimum of fuss and effort. This recipe is so much simpler in the microwave and nobody could tell that I had "cheated'. Although - just to take note - just because it is the microwave doesn't mean it doesn't take time. There are many things to microwave in several different sessions, and microwaving potatoes takes some time.

      Easy, but as usual when made in the microwave, not as good as in the oven. The skins of the potatoes were tough and the potatoes were overdone cooking them as long as you said. I guess it depends on the wattage of your microwave, because the times here were way too long, resulting in a not so great tasting baked potato as posted,
