  • I usually wash potatos poke with fork wrap in wet paper towels stick in microwave for 5 to 10 mins. depends on how many and how big they are. With a hot pad sqeeze and see if they are done. then follow recipe for scooping and mixing..then bake.

  • Absolutley, it will cut down the time tremendously and make it so you do not have to turn on the hot over. I do as the above poster and pike about 4 times and I place mine right in the microwave without covering them. Then when I want to see if they are finished I just poke a fork into them and if it slides in with ease then they are good to go. I love twiced baked potatos!
