  • Baking potatoes - see directions for amounts
  • Paper plates or microwave proof plates


  • Select baking potatoes of uniform size if possible so that they will all be cooked at the same time. Scrub potatoes with a stiff brush. Remove any bad spots with a sharp knife.
  • Cut a thin slice from one end of each potato. Prick entire surface of potato with the tines of a fork.
  • Place potatoes on paper plates in the microwave oven with at least 1 inch of space between them. Cook given amount of time. It is easy to test potatoes with a fork or skewer to determine when they are done, so try shorter cooking time first and then increase time as needed.
