Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 4 potatoes


  • 4 washed potatoes

  • paprika
  • tuscan herbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees fan forced.

  2. Wash your potatoes under running water and dry thoroughly.

  3. Pierce the surface of each potato a few times with a fork (this stops them exploding in the microwave).

  4. Place them on a microwave safe platter and cook them in the microwave on high for 10 minutes. If they are not easily squashable after this time, continue cooking at 5 minute intervals.

  5. Remove the potatoes from the microwave and squash them with a fork. Season generously and place in the oven until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
