Simple Microwaved Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are not only a great side dish, but they also can be a meal in themselves. I just love to eat microwaved baked potatoes for lunch. I "fluff" my potatoes to make them easier to add other ingredients to as well as easier to eat. Keep reading today's post to find out what my secret is to fluffy potatoes.

Patricia's Fluffy Microwaved Baked Potatoes

  1. First, wash your potatoes.
  2. Follow the microwave manufacturer's instructions to bake the number of potatoes you're going to make.
  3. Once baked, slice the potatoes from end to end - leaving about 1/4 inch unsliced on each end.
  4. Next, use a fork to "fluff" the potato flesh. Keep poking and gouging until it's very fluffy. 
  5. The fluffiness will prepare the potato to better absorb and mix in the margarine and/or sour cream.
  6. Once you have your margarine or sour cream added, you can add bacon bits (NOTE: I make my own from fresh microwavable bacon), shredded cheddar cheese, chili, chives, salt and pepper, and anything else you like to top your baked potatoes with. 
Simply place the potatoes back in the microwave for about 1 minute if they cool down while you're adding the toppings. 😊


I hope you enjoy your delicious, fluffy microwaved baked potatoes. Thanks for dropping by today.

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:
