Hey there! Happy Thursday, and thanks for joining me today! True story: I can't bake a potato. Correction: I couldn't bake potatoes. I couldn't bake them in the oven, the grill, or in the microwave. They were always undercooked. I had some success in the Crock-pot, but the method always made me feel like I was going to somehow burn the house down.
All of that changed this past December when I got Chrissy Teigen's cookbook, Cravings, for one of my Target Cartwheel Perks. I have quite a few of Chrissy's recipes bookmarked to try out soon, but for New Year's Eve, I made her sour cream and broccoli baked potato cakes, and they were fabulous!
So, when I was making these potato cakes, I finally learned how to perfectly bake potatoes in the microwave for a mid-week meal! This blonde thanks you, supermodel Chrissy Teigen! Scroll on down to learn Chrissy's super easy method for baking those hot potatoes!
* 3 russet potatoes
* paper towels
* fixings such as green onions, bacon crumbles, sour cream, shredded cheese, salt, and pepper
* Scrub your potatoes.
* Poke the potatoes all over with a fork.
* Get three paper towels wet.
* Wrap each potato in a paper towel.
* Put the potatoes on a plate and microwave on high for about 15 minutes.
* Slice the cooked potatoes and top with desired fixings.
Sorry if you're rolling your eyes right now for me counting this as a recipe, but this has been a game changer for me, and now I can stop wasting 45+ minutes at the grill or oven only to end up with undercooked taters! Check out more of Chrissy's tips, recipes, and tricks in her book, Cravings.
