Microwave Baked Potato
Baking potatoes in the microwave is a quick and easy way to enjoy baked potatoes without having to wait for the oven to cook them. And if your microwave does not have a special baked potato setting, here is how to bake one the right way.
Wash potatoes (leaving wet) and pierce skin in the center. Wrap in paper towel. Cook on high for 6-7 minutes. For multiple potatoes, wrap individually and cook:
1 potato – 6-7 minutes
2 potatoes – 9-12 minutes
3 potatoes – 13-16 minutes
4 potatoes – 18-22 minutes
Larger potatoes may take longer to bake. Once done, remove from microwave and leave wrapped for five minutes. Cut open and serve.
