Twice Baked Potatoes/ Microwave

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by appetizerqueen

Easy and yummy. Great for when it is too hot for baking. Can easily be wrapped up and reheated as leftovers. The cream cheese adds a little something different. Makes a great, quick meal if you add a small salad.

WOW is all I can say. I made these in a pinch because I did not have time for the oven. TZehya re great! I did crisp up in the oven for about 15 minutes, the last 5 I added shredded cheddar cheese to top off. I plan to make a huge bag and went and bout a 15 lb. pag of king size russetts to make them with. Thank you for a great recipe.
