Twice Baked Potatoes
4 white potatoes
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup scallions or chives, sliced
Wash the potatoes well, and using a fork, poke the potato in several places on the top and bottom. Place all 4 potatoes on microwave-safe dish, and microwave on high for 8 to 10 minutes, turning the potatoes over at the half-way cooking point. Remove the potatoes and quickly wrap in aluminum foil, and let sit out on the counter for about 10 minutes to allow the cooking process to complete, and let the potatoes cool to handle.
Meanwhile, mix together the butter, sour cream, milk, and cheese in a separate mixing bowl. When the potatoes have cooled, cut them in half and scoop out the center of each potato and add this to the butter/sour cream mixture. Mix together well, and if desired, add a dash of salt and pepper to taste. Finally, spoon the mixture back into the potato skins, replace on the microwave-safe dish, and microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes, until the potatoes are heated through again. When you remove the potatoes from the microwave, sprinkle the top with the scallions, serve and enjoy!
