How to Make Microwave Stuffed Potato

  • Wash the potato and cut out any bad bits. Dry the potato with a paper towel or a towel. Pierce the potato several times with a fork.
  • Put the potato on a paper towel. Put it in the microwave and cook on high power for 8 - 10 minutes depending on the size of the potato and how many you cook at once. Turn the potato over and cook for another 8 - 10 minutes until the potato is soft. (It is very easy to over cook in a microwave so be careful.)
  • While the potato is cooking, prepare your filling (chop, grate slice, dice etc.)
  • When the potato is soft, take out of the microwave and cut the potato in half, lengthwise.
  • Scoop out the flesh of the potato using a tsp leaving an edge all the way round. Put the flesh in a large bowl, add margarine and milk and mix until smooth like a paste.
  • Mix in the filling, reserving some of the grated cheese for later.
  • Put filling back into the 2 potato shells. Place on a piece of aluminium foil, sprinkle on remainder of cheese and put under the grill until cheese has melted.
  • Once the cheese has melted take the potato out of the grill. The Stuffed Baked Potato is done.
