–          1 tablespoon butter or margarine

–           3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese

–           salt and pepper to taste

–           3 teaspoons sour cream


–          Scrub the potato, and prick several time with the tines of a fork. Place on a plate.

–          Cook on full power in the microwave for 5 minutes. Turn over, and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. When the potato is soft, remove from the microwave, and cut in half lengthwise. Season with salt and pepper, and mash up the inside a little using a fork. Top the open sides with butter and 2 tablespoons of cheese. Return to the microwave, and cook for about 1 minute to melt the cheese.

–          Top with remaining cheese and sour cream, and serve.

      i’m wondering the same thing i think you can use any recipe as long as it’s a microwave recipe

    • Ralph says :

      This is a microwave recipe I normally use. I would think that using stone wave should reduce the time. In their recipe book they have you peel and dice the potatoe into 1/2 inch pieces. They have you add olive oil and minced garlic cloves. Cook 2.5 minutes covered . Top with butter and bacon and cook covered another minute.Then Top with shredded cheese and cover without microwaving for a minute. However, I like my baked potatoe with skin and no olive oil and garlic.
