Potatoes – Half Baked

I know this sounds like these potatoes are not baked completely but they certainly are.  

Actually, they are half-baked in the microwave and half- baked with the standard oven.  This is not why I call them half-baked, though.  It is because, I bake them as opened halves.  This makes the outer part of the inside crispy over the softer part of the potato.

Potatoes – Half Baked


2 potatoes (Idaho), cut down the middle

spray olive oil

1/2 green pepper, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1/4 teaspoon sweet or hot paprika, whichever you prefer

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Place potato halves on a plate in the microwave for 8 minutes.  Remove and spray olive oil over the surface and bake for 20 minutes in the traditional oven at 400 degrees.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Remove potatoes from oven and cover pieces with  chopped onions and green pepper.  Sprinkle with seasoning and cover with vegetables.  Spray additional olive oil on the top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
