I recently came across these “Texas-size Baked Potatoes,” so I decided to blog about this awesome baked potato I made/ate after work last night. Baked potato is actually not too difficult, but honestly, I didn’t bake mine. I actually steamed it… sorta.
First, I washed my potato and then I poked some holes with my silver fork and let it sit in water for 5-10 minutes so that my potato would be moist. Then I placed the potato in a ceramic plate that curves upward slightly like a bowl and added a bit of water in the plate, put the potato on the plate & put saran wrapped the plate & put it in the microwave for 5 minutes. After that, I took the potato out to check if a chopstick or fork could be pressed into the potato (This will tell me if the potato is soft enough or not). If not, put it back in the microwave & add 2-3 more minutes until it’s cooked right.
When the potato is cooked, cut the potato open and insert your toppings of your choice for your baked potato. You can add green onions, bacon bits, cheese, sour cream, butter, … pretty much whatever you want, and that’s it! I added green onions, mozzarella cheese, and bacon bits in mine since that was what I had at the house.
I hope ya’ll enjoyed my version of an easy baked potato. Haha. I just thought these potatoes were huge & thought I’d share it with everyone. Pretty crazy big, right? 🙂
Take care, everyone!
