    I JUST LOVE this easy recipe. It is based on Alfredo Potatoes in the Sept/Oct 2000 issue of Quick Cooking.

    1. 1
      Pierce the potatoes with a knife in several places. Microwave on high until cooked completely for 6 to 11 minutes (depending on your oven).
    2. 2
      Cut the cooked potatoes in half lengthwise and allow to cool slightly.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, combine the alfredo sauce, garlic powder, thyme and pepper. Add 1/2 cup of the cheese to the seasoned sauce.
    4. 4
      Using a grapefruit spoon or other small spoon, scoop out the potato pulp leaving a thin, skin shell. Add the scooped-out potato to the sauce mixture.
    5. 5
      Mix the sauce and the potato well. Spoon back into the potato shells. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and teaspoon of bacon bits per shell. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until the cheese melts.

      Thanks for posting JawjaCook. The family really enjoyed these. My store's baking potatoes were xlarge so I needed to microwave the potatoes for double the time to get the insides cooked and soft. Next time I would use smaller potatoes to avoid that but the large potatoes looked fantastic. The sauce mixture is tasty. I used Bertolli Alfredo sauce and Kraft cheese. I used real bacon bits in a jar. Really good. The second batch I added fresh green onions sliced for color. This recipe made me change my negative thoughts about microwaves. Made for My Three Chefs Event Oct 2013. Enjoy! ChefDLH
