Hungry? Want to have something that’s filling but you don’t have the energy to Make Something™? Then this amazing recipe is for you if:
1) you have a microwave
2) you one (1) potato and a bowl to put it in
3) hot water
Put the potato in the bowl. Fill it halfway with hot water. Stick in the microwave for 10 minutes (time varies with size of potato).
Go to your fridge and see what you have to put on the potato. Cheese? That’s perfect? Butter? GREAT. Half-empty can of sweet corn? Excellent. Leftover baked beans? Wonderful. Collect toppings on the counter and get a plate out. Halfway through the microwave time, pause it, flip the potato and poke holes in the top with a fork. Assess softness. Resume.
When the potato is done, take it out carefully (remember you’ve got hot water) and plop it onto your plate. Cut a cross into the potato. Add butter and other meltable toppings while the potato is still very hot. Add more toppings. Grab that same fork and enjoy.
