Pre heat your oven to 425. Prep the potatoes like you usually would. i.e. Wash 'em, poke 'em full of holes, rub them with some EVOO and sea salt. While your oven is heating, start them cooking in the microwave for about 5-7 min depending on the size of your potatoes. Flip them over once during cooking. Then transfer to the oven to finish off the job while you prep the rest of your meal. This way you'll get that nice crispy skin of oven baking. Plus they can just hang out in the oven until you are ready for them. Enjoy!
