DIRECTIONS

  • Slice potatoes lengthwise.
  • Lay out on a microwave plate, skins down. Carve a vertical line about halfway through the potato. This helps it cook even and is not necessary for smaller or thinner potato strips. You could also carve an "X" shape instead.
  • Microwave on HIGH for 10 Minutes.
  • Take out of microwave and if you want to, spread out margarine or butter thinly over the potatoes. Top each potato with a good handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with Bacos.
  • Microwave on high an additional 2 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
  • Let potatoes sit for a few minutes. They are usually extremely HOT. Also, be careful handling the plate. After they have cooled, salt to taste and enjoy!
