What's Cookin' -- Baked Potato

Baked Potatoes
These take forever in the oven -- an hour and half if I remember right. This is an easy trick to get them done faster without loosing quality. Plus I've gotten compliments on how good and crispy the skins taste.

4 Russet potatoes or baking potatoes

1. Turn oven to 425 degrees.

2. Poke holes in potatoes with a fork to allow steam to escape.
3. Place 4 potatoes in the microwave for 8 minutes. Now this varies depending on your microwave and size of potato. You may need to play around with this a little. Try to use the largest and same sized potatoes as you can.
4. Take potatoes out of oven and put on cooking sheet -- no aluminum foil wrapped around them. They should be partly baked, but not all the way.
5. Put in oven for 20 minutes. Again this time might vary depending on size of potato and how long it was in the microwave.
