Microwave Buttered Potato

Microwave Buttered Potato

Boiling potatoes in a pot is a bit of a pain, so I made a piping hot buttered potato in the microwave!


Potatoes (small to medium)
to taste


1. Wrap the potatoes with a moistened kitchen towel.
2. Wrap in plastic wrap.
3. Microwave at 500 W for 4 minutes. Flip it over and microwave for another minute. (If it is still hard, microwave a little more at a time.)
4. Make two scores on top of the potatoes in a crosshair pattern, top with butter, and enjoy.

Story Behind this Recipe

Just wrapping in plastic wrap before microwaving will cook it unevenly, so in order to properly steam it, I tried wrapping it in a moistened kitchen towel as well.
