If you think you don’t have time to bake potatoes, think again! Pierce the skins a few times with a fork, then microwave on high for 3-4 minutes. Once they’re cool enough to handle, rub them all over with olive oil and salt, then bake on the top shelf of the oven for 20-25 minutes for the skins to become nice and crispy.
