Preparing baked potatoes in a microwave takes far less time than baking them in an oven, but sometimes the wonderful texture of an oven baked potato is missing. Take the following steps to give microwave potatoes an oven baked texture.
Once you remove the potatoes from the microwave, wrap them in aluminum foil. Place them inside of an oven mitt for about ten minutes. If you don't have an oven mitt, you can roll the foil wrapped potatoes in a towel. When you unwrap the potatoes they will have the soft, fluffy texture of oven baked potatoes.
This also works with sweet potatoes.
