      So good!! I tried these because of Marg's photo and review. Why have I never thought of using the microwave first and then the oven?? I have always wanted that salty, crunchy skin but didn't want to wait an hour or more for oven potatoes. I'm using this method from now on. Thank you!

      This was a great way to get a perfect baked potato in a short amount of time! My only problem was 8 minutes in the microwave was waaaaay too long for my potato. The first one was so shriveled up, I had to throw it away. For the second one, I used the automatic baked potato setting & it only took about 4 minutes for it to be done. So make sure you check your potato early! Since I was also making Roasted Asparagus to go with our steaks, only having the oven on for 15 minutes worked really well. I loved how crisp the skin got because of the oil. In fact, once I was getting full, I scraped the rest of the potato out so I could finish eating the skin instead. It was excellent! I'll use this method often. UPDATE: This method also works well on the grill. I put my potato just at the edge of the coals and turned it halfway through and it turned out lovely!

      Oh gosh what a great way to have baked potatoes and so easily. After microwaving mine, I brushed with the oil and lightly sprinkled with Kosher Salt and fresh black pepper. Excellent. Thanks for sharing. Made for cookbook tag game.
