READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kindcook

Thats right, you cook it in the microwave! This came from a newspaper around 1994 and I'm still making it today. It is SUPER easy and delicious. We like to add steamed broccoli to ours when served. Enjoy.

This was good, but keep in mind that if you have a low wattage microwave like I do, the potatoes will need about 25-35 minutes. Still, a lot more convenient that most soups.
