Microwave Baked Potato

Wed September 23, 2015


2 large potatoes
4 cups small broccoli florets
1 Tbsp. water
1/4 cup sour cream (if desired)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup cheddar cheese 


Pierce the potatoes with a fork or knife in a few places. Place the potatoes on a microwavable plate and microwave on high for 12 minutes, rotating the potatoes halfway through. Set potatoes aside for later.

Place the water and broccoli in a microwave safe bowl; loosely cover and microwave on high for 3-5 minutes. Drain the broccoli once it is tender. Grab the potatoes that were set aside and cut the potatoes in half, lengthwise. Scoop the broccoli into the potato with the salt, pepper and sour cream; top off with cheese. Microwave the stuffed potatoes for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
