2pounds medium baking potatoes (also called Idaho or “old potatoes”)well scrubbed – about 6 potatoes
Place the washed potatoes in the pressure cooker and pierce the side of the potato facing up with a fork a few times or poke each a few times using point of a knife. Then, add a cup of water.
Turn on oven to 450°F so to pre-heat while the potatoes are pressure cooking.
Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker.
Cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.
When time is up, open the cooker by releasing the pressure.
Using tongs, and being careful not to remove too much of the skin, place each potato directly on the middle rack of the oven (poked holes facing up) and bake for 10-15 minutes – take out the smallest potatoes and serve first. Then, turn off the oven and let the larger potatoes continue to bake using the oven’s residual heat for another 5-10 minutes.
Enjoy your crispy, fluffy baked short-cut potatoes!
