Best baked potato EVER!

Posted: October 3, 2013 in Review

I just had to share this, since i experimented last night, and it turned out super yummy!

Disclaimer: yes, I realize that actual baked potatoes (as in the oven) are the best, but I don’t have the patience to wait that long, especially when the end result is as wonderful as this turned out to be!

Take one well sized (dare i say endowed?) potato and scrub it well with water.  Rinse.
Put damp potato on a plate and drizzle with olive oil.  Don’t over do it.  Using your fingers, rotate the potato on the plate and rub the oil to coat the skin.
Light sprinkle potato with salt – sea salt works best.
Put in microwave and bake for 8 minutes.

When there’s about a minute to go, take a few tablespoons of butter and minced garlic and put in microwave safe cup.  Sprinkle in salt to your own taste.  Once potato is done, swap it for the cup in the microwave and heat butter/garlic for about 40 seconds.  You want the butter melted but not boiling.
While that’s heating, cut the potato in half length wise and then slice each half down the middle (skin should be facing down)
Stir butter/garlic and make sure it’s all liquid and then evenly pour over spread out potato.

Then sprinkle generously with bacon bits and grated cheese (you can skip this if you don’t like cheese…but who the hell doesn’t like cheese besides weird people?)
Microwave for an additional 40 seconds and enjoy!  I know I did!
