Microwave Stuffed Potatoes

Main/Side Dishes


Ingredient Amount
2 Medium Potatoes
1 tsp / 5ml Butter or margarine
1-1/2 Tbsp / 22.5ml Processed cheese spread (or real cheese grated)
1/8 cup / 30ml Green onions or chives, thinly chopped
1 Tbsp / 15ml Bacon bits
To taste Salt and pepper


Brush clean 2 potatoes (Russets are good). Poke small holes into each and microwave 6-8 minutes or until soft. Remove from microwave - they will be hot! - and cut off a thin slice from the top of each. Scoop out pulp and place in a bowl. Set skins aside. Mash pulp with a hand masher adding all remaining ingredients except cheddar cheese. Note: These ingredients can be increased or decreased to taste. Heap into skins. Top with grated cheddar cheese. Reheat in microwave until heated through and cheddar has melted slightly. Serve immediately. Note: Potatoes may be made ahead of time and reheated just before serving. Yield: Serves two.
