If you want something really quick to eat, like a Baked Potato but you aren’t patient enough, you can try the microwave version that is just as good!
Preparation Time: 1 mins
Cook: 11 mins
- 1 large russet potato
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
Scrub potato and prick with a fork. Place on a microwave-safe plate.
Microwave on full power for 5 minutes. Turn potato over, and microwave until soft, about 5 more minutes.
Remove potato from the microwave, and cut in half lengthwise. Season with salt and pepper and mash up the inside a little with a fork.
Add butter and Cheddar cheese. Microwave until melted, about 1 more minute.
Top with sour cream, and serve.
