Microwave Baked Potatoes

Serves 4

Cut a thin wedge lengthwise (1/8-inch wide and ½-inch deep) out of four medium (5 to 6-ounce) potatoes. Place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on HIGH, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave. (The wedge allows steam to fully escape from the potato, resulting in a dry and fluffy pulp.)

What you top your potato with determines how healthy it is. Delicious alternatives to usual toppings include broccoli spears and low-fat Cheddar; salsa, nonfat yogurt and cilantro; vegetarian chili; marinara sauce and parmesan cheese; bacon bits; grilled veggies; healthy buttery spread and sea salt.
