Microwave Oven Baked Potato

Yesterday, I had a yearning for baked potato, but do not have much time and our oven is occupied with another dish. I saw several recipes on the web in how to bake potato in a microwave. But the following from attracted my attention.


Original recipe makes 1 serving

1 large russet potato

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese

salt and pepper to taste

3 teaspoons sour cream


1.Scrub the potato, and prick several time with the tines of a fork. Place on a plate.

2.Cook on full power in the microwave for 5 minutes. Turn over, and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. When the potato is soft, remove from the microwave, and cut in half lengthwise. Season with salt and pepper, and mash up the inside a little using a fork. Top the open sides with butter and 2 tablespoons of cheese. Return to the microwave, and cook for about 1 minute to melt the cheese.

3.Top with remaining cheese and sour cream, and serve.
