Number of Servings: 1


    1 medium potato
    salt & pepper
    1 tbsp butter or margarine (I used Blue Bonnet margarine)
    3 tbsp grated cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, any you like)


Wash the potato and pierce it a few times with a fork.

Microwave on high for 5 minutes, then turn it over and microwave for 5 more minutes.

When soft, remove from the microwave and cut lengthwise. Add salt and pepper to season then, using a fork, mash the insides slightly. Top with butter, 2 tbsp of cheese and any other toppings.

Return to the microwave for 1 minute then remove and top with remaining cheese.

  • Easy to prepare. Very flavorful and filling for a lunch. Just added a sprinkling of chives because potatoes always taste better with chives. :) - 5/6/15

  • This worked for me. I eased up on the calories -- but not taste -- by using a little milk to mash and less butter and cheese. - 8/16/11
