Microwave baked potatoes

The ingredients:
4 large potatoes
1/2 onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup steamed broccoli
1 cup cheese

The recipe:
Scrub the potatoes and poke all over with deep holes. Rub with olive oil, salt and pepper. Microwave until tender when you squeeze them. (in my microwave: 10 minutes) Cut in half.

Saute onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil for five minutes. Add spices and lemon juice. Add cheese and stir until melted. Chop steamed broccoli and combine with cheese mixture.

Scoop potato flesh out of potato halves, leaving about 1/2 inch until the skin. Mix the potato into the broccoli mixture, then scoop the broccoli, cheese and potato into the empty potato shells.
Was that fast, easy, cheap and delicious or what???


  1. Was this recipe influenced by any dinner we have ever had?

  2. Yes... but this time it turned out better!

  3. Nice recipe. As I don't do milk I substituted a little oil and some yeast flakes for the cheese and it worked really well.
