I am sure there are lots of other people out there that do this but I will post this for those that haven't thought of it. I loved making baked potatoes, they are good for you and cheap (especially cheap for us as we glean our potatoes and get them free) and so very easy. The only problem that I have heard many people complain about is that they take a long time to cook. My solution: Use the microwave. Even for our family of 6 I can usually cook enough potatoes in 20 minutes. Just scrub them and poke them and then put them in to cook. I usually turn them halfway through as well. They taste good and are very fast. That method Works for me!
