Microwaved Soft and Fluffy Potatoes

The hint to making these soft potatoes in the microwave is to add a little water, which helps fluff them up.


5 small to medium
2 tablespoons


1. Wash the potatoes well and cut in half. Place on a heat-resistant dish, add water, and cover with a lid or plastic bag.
2. Microwave for 7-8 minutes at 500 W. Insert a toothpick through to check for doneness. If still hard, keep an eye on them as you continue to microwave.
