Baked Potato - a Microwave Recipe

Potato has a flushy interior and a crisp skin  when baked well. It may be served with fillings on top.Before
baking,U should scrub and wash the potato well,let it dry and rub it with olive oil or butter and/or salt. Prick
the potato with a fork or knife so that steam escapes during the cooking process. Potatoes cooked in a microwave without pricking the skin might explode due to internal pressure.(It takes between one - one hour and 15 mins to bake a potato in a conventional oven after pre-heating the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6). Microwaving takes 6-12 mins depending on the size of the potato.This serves one.Enjoy Ur Meal!. BonAppetit!.
