Twice Microwaved Potatoes Recipe

  • 6 medium russet potatoes
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cubed processed cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • garlic powder to taste
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion (optional)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
  1. Poke potatoes with the tines of a fork, and place them in the microwave oven. The more holes, the better. Cook on high power for about 4 minutes per potato. Check about halfway through, and turn potatoes over for even cooking. Potatoes are done when they can be easily poked with a fork.
  2. Remove potatoes from the microwave, and cut each one in half lengthwise. Use a large spoon to scoop out the inside of the potatoes, leaving the skins intact. Place the scoopings into a large microwave safe bowl, and stir in the 4 green onions, sour cream, processed cheese, and 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese. Season with garlic powder, seasoned salt, and black pepper; mix well.
  3. Place the bowl in the microwave, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through. Scoop the mixture back into the potato skins to serve, or serve from the bowl. Garnish with additional green onion and shredded cheese if desired.
