Easy Cheesy Microwave Potatoes

I have seen recipes on the net where they bake the potatoes in the oven with butter and with slices of onion between the potato slices. So I thought I would try to make them in the microwave to make them quicker and without the onions for my husband. I added chopped green onions to mine for more color. This is a change from plain baked potatoes.
Enjoy! Debbie

EASY CHEESY MICROWAVE POTATOES



BAKING POTATOES; As Needed.
SALT; To Taste.
BLACK PEPPER; To Taste.
BUTTER; To Taste.
GREEN ONIONS; Or Chives, Chopped, Optional.
CHEDDAR CHEESE; Shredded, To Taste.
SOUR CREAM; Optional.
_____

Wash potatoes with water.
Using a sharp knife, cut 1/8" slices from end to end of potato.
Do not cut all the way through potato.
Place the potatoes in a microwave safe dish.
Spread butter on top of potatoes and between slices the best you can.
Season with salt and pepper.
Microwave potatoes on high until potatoes are tender.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top of potatoes and let set until cheese has melted or return to the microwave and heat until melted.
Sprinkle chopped onions or chives on top of each potato before serving.
Serve with sour cream on top if desired.

I made these -- I haven't made in long time - Thanks for the reminder--

I am really naughty when i make these -- I slice them and instead of butter i use bacon grease, when almost done i put the cheese on them . when finish top them with sour cream chives and bacon bits, ( Like Potato skins idea)

Other times I have put chopped broccoli with it.
(when I have a guilty moment and throw in something healthy)

Just wanted to mention that you can use pencils, or other type "guide" material for how far down the potato to cut and still have all slices attached.
