How to Cook Potatoes in Microwave


  • 3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 large russet potato
  • 1 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 3 teaspoons sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste.


  1. Scrub the potato, and prick a while with the tines of a fork. Put on a plate.
  2. Turn over, and continue to cook for 5 minutes. When the potato is tender, remove from the microwave, and then cut in half lengthwise. Season with salt and pepper, and mash up the interior a bit using a fork. Top the open sides with butter and two tablespoons of cheese. Return to the microwave, and cook for approximately 1 minute to melt the cheese.
  3. Then add the remaining cheese and sour cream, and serve.
