Level of difficulty Easy
Cost Budget Friendly


Step 1

Poke holes with fork into potatoes. Precook potatoes in convection microwave for 8 minutes, turning halfway through.

Step 2

Pour 1/2 tbsp oil in hand, roll potatoe in oiled hand once cool.

Step 3

Roll oiled potatoe on surface covered with salt, pepper and any other herbs.

Step 4

Bake at 500F for 15 minutes each side, straight on grate.

Step 5

Serve with your choice of toppings.


Do NOT pre-cook these by boiling- you may loose some of the skin (extra fibre and nutrients). If you do not have a convection microwave, a regular microwave is fine but don't let them get too soft.
