  • Microwave the potato on high for 8 minutes. Turn over and continue to cook in the microwave until tender, about 8 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Cook time can vary depending on microwave power and size of potato.

You can always make it with more or less cream cheese or butter for the consistency you prefer.
