Best Ever Baked Potatoes
- Potatoes (Red or Yukon is best but can use baking, russet, or any).
Level of difficulty Easy
Cost Budget Friendly
Poke holes with fork into potatoes. Precook potatoes in convection microwave for 8 minutes, turning halfway through.
Pour 1/2 tbsp oil in hand, roll potatoe in oiled hand once cool.
Roll oiled potatoe on surface covered with salt, pepper and any other herbs.
Bake at 500F for 15 minutes each side, straight on grate.
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.
