Here is a quick way to have baked potatoes in less than an hour!
To prepare the potatoes, you can peel them or leave the skins on.
Boil the potatoes, covered in water until almost tender. Knife should almost go through the potato when testing for doneness. Usually the potatoes are cooked 15 minutes - 20 minutes.
Drain water off potatoes.
Using a spatula (a spoonula works best) , roll potatoes in melted butter, roughing them up in the butter. You can add a little more butter if there isn't any left in the baking dish.
Add salt and/or pepper to the potatoes as desired.
Bake at about 375F for about an hour or less, or when knife easily goes through the potato.
These potatoes fry well too, especially if they are Russets!
