Cook a pierced potato in the microwave until it’s soft all the way through – about 6-7 minutes total, flipping over every 1-2 minutes. Cut the potato in half, then cut each half into squares. Don’t cut all the way through, just down to the skin. Season with butter, parmesan cheese and Lowry’s seasoning salt, then pop them into the middle rack of your oven set to broil for 10-15 minutes.
The perfect baked potato. Wash and scrub the potato, slice into thin slices making sure not to cut all the way through, place in a baking dish and fan out the slices, sprinkle with salt/herbs and drizzle with butter. Bake at 425 for about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cheeses or whatever toppings you like. Bake for another 15 minutes or until cheeses are melted/potato is soft
