Microwave Baked Potatoes

Prep time:  2 mins

Cook time:  20 mins

Total time:  22 mins

  • Russet Potatoes (you could buy baking potatoes for the bigger ones if you want)
  • a microwave
  • any toppings you want for you baked potatoes
  1. Wash potatoes thoroughly.
  2. Poke them with a fork a few times (this is optional, but make me feel better) 😉
  3. Place in the microwave – no container needed. I put them on a paper towel, but you don’t have to.
  4. Cook on high for about 10 minutes.
  5. Flip each potato (careful it will be hot)
  6. Cook on high for another 10 minutes.
  7. They should feel soft to touch when they are done. 20 minutes was plenty with 4 big ones we had. You may need to increase or decrease time a little depending on how many potatoes you are cooking.
