Choose Your Toppings: 

Scallions: Thinly slice scallions and sprinkle them over the top of your baked potato before baking.

Shredded cheese: This is a great way to add texture, flavor and protein to your dish. Varied types of shredded cheese can be used, including cheddar, blue cheese, pepper jack or mozzarella.

Crushed tomatoes: These can add sweetness and a touch of acidity to your potatoes while providing a healthy dose of lycopene, which is linked with reducing the risk of cancer.

Cilantro: A classic addition to seafood dishes, cilantro adds freshness and a hint of spice. If you don’t have any, parsley will also work well in this recipe.

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar*
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise

Tip: If you don’t have white wine vinegar, substitute with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. Tip: If you don’t have light mayonnaise, substitute it with equal amounts of Greek-style yogurt or sour cream.

How do you bake potatoes in a microwave?

Microwaving potatoes is a quick and convenient way to prepare them. Place the potatoes in an airtight container or dish, cover them with water, and microwave on high for 8 to 10 minutes or until soft. Drain any excess water before serving.

Some recipes call for baking the potatoes instead of microwaving them. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) to bake the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into small pieces and spread them on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil or use butter if desired. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.
