If you microwave them, they are mealy, not fluffy.
Also, did you know that if you wrap them in foil, it steams the skins & they are not nearly as tasty? True!
On Saturday night, I decided to grill some steaks & threw 2 potatoes into the oven. I checked them after an hour, and they needed a little more time, so I closed the oven door again. About 10 minutes later, I heard a weird "POP" sound, but it seemed to come from another part of the house. My children were outside, and husband was upstairs, so I thought maybe it was a ball against the house or something like that.
10 minutes after the noise I checked the potatoes again, I found this:
Yes, that is an exploded potato.... with potato debris on every surface of my oven! Has this ever happened to you? I'm not sure what I was more sad about: having to share a potato, or cleaning up the mess.
OK, it was totally the mess.
