Preheat the oven to 200 degrees fan forced.
Wash your potatoes under running water and dry thoroughly.
Pierce the surface of each potato a few times with a fork (this stops them exploding in the microwave).
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.
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.
