6 baked potatoes


  • 6 baking potatoes, scrubbed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • salt to taste

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • ½ tomato, diced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 cup beef gravy

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 6 strips cooked bacon, diced

  1. Prick potatoes several times with a fork and place in a microwaveable baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Microwave on high until fork-tender, about 6 minutes.
