If you haven't noticed...I like potatoes! There are several CookingFor2 posts that have to do with potatoes, and now I'm adding another one! This is something that I like to make when I'm in a rush, but want something tasty to eat, or if you're just having a lazy day this is another easy dinner to fix up in less than 10 minutes per potato. I love it and the toppings are endless!
2-4 large baking potatoes
1. Select your potato and take it to the sink. Scrub off the dirt and rinse.
2. Put the potato in the microwave and heat for 3-5 minutes. If it's a smaller potato 3 minutes should cook it just fine. If it's larger it might take 5 or more minutes, but start with five. When the microwave beeps stick a fork in the potato. It should go in easily. If it sticks or gets stuck coming out cook the potato a minute or two longer. Check it again when the microwave beeps.
3. Once your potato is cooked place it on a plate and chop it up. I usually keep the skins on.
