“When I was growing up, there was always a potato on the table. This is one of my mom's favorite recipes & we still fix these potatoes regularly. It's a good replacement for regular baked potaotes! This recipe calls for the potatoes to be baked in the oven to cook but you can cook them in the microwave. I have not had as much luck getting the potatoes to stay together when cooked in the microwave but you can try either way you like. The microwave is much faster, of course!”
