DIRECTIONS

  • Try this method for toasting the pecans: Sprinkle chopped pecans on a paper plate and microwave on high for 1 or 2 minutes, they should smell toasted when they are done.
  • Scrub, but do not peel, the potatoes.
  • Pierce them in several places with a fork.
  • Microwave on HIGH for 12 minutes until done.
  • Meanwhile, combine the butter, sugar, and pecans.
  • Once potatoes are done, slice length wise, about 2/3 of the way down (do not cut through) and push end toward each other to "fluff" the potato and create a well for the butter.
  • Place a scoop of butter mixture into the center and wrap in foil until serving.
