    Great simple potato. I microwaved mine and it came out nice and fluffy. Thanks Little Old Me for a nice keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    Mmmmmmm, the perfect baked potato. I used the baking method as opposed to the microwave method and left off the shortening. Just pierced the potatoes with a fork, wrapped in foil, and popped them in the oven! Awesome!
