Ever wondered how to cook a baked potato in the microwave? It's quicker than the oven and comes out great. This is how I cook potatoes in the microwave. I usually don't put any more than 2 potatoes in the microwave at a time.
Microwave Baked Potatoes
Clean medium sized potatoes. (However many you need for the mouths you're feeding.) Do NOT dry potatoes off. Potatoes should still be wet.
Thoroughly poke each potato with a fork. (2-3 times on 4 sides)
Wrap in a moist (not soaked) paper towel.
Put 1-2 potatoes in the microwave at a time. Cook for 3-5 minutes. (If you dare to put in more than 2 potatoes, increase time; checking periodically so they don't explode.)
Poke potatoes with a fork to determine if they need more time to cook. Cook for an additional 30 seconds-1 minute depending on tenderness of potato.
Cut potatoes open and put your desired toppings on them.
Cheese is a favorite and will melt right on the potato.
Bacon toppings are good too and don't require extra cooking time.
Cooked broccoli or peppers or other veggies make for a rounded meal.
