2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt to taste
Toppings of your choice (sour cream, chives, cheese, bacon bits, etc.)
4 medium-sized russet potatoes


Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly under running water. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
Use a fork to prick the potatoes all over, which allows steam to escape during cooking.
Rub each potato with olive oil, ensuring they are evenly coated.
Sprinkle salt generously over each potato to season.
Place the potatoes on a microwave-safe plate, making sure they are not touching each other.
Microwave the potatoes on high for 5-7 minutes per potato, depending on their size. Check for doneness by inserting a fork or knife into the center; it should go in easily.
If you prefer a crispier skin, transfer the partially cooked potatoes to a preheated oven set at 425°F (220°C) and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
Once the potatoes are cooked through and the skin is crispy, carefully remove them from the oven.
Let the potatoes cool for a few minutes before handling. Then, slice each potato lengthwise and fluff the insides with a fork.
