Microwave Potatoes a La Helga

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mums the word

A fast recipe I found in an old school cookbook. I like to make this in the summer because it doesn't heat up the kitchen.

I forgot the onion, but I didn't miss it. I almost think the butter is overkill, but it does add a great flavor. I recommend checking for doneness after 5 minutes or so, because microwaves vary so much. Thanks for posting!
