Twice Microwaved Loaded Potatoes

We've all heard of twice baked potatoes. They are delicious. But they take soooo long to make. Well, I was feeling lazy the other night when it came to dinner, but I was craving twice baked potatoes. I knew you could make a baked potato in the microwave, why not a twice baked potato? In approximately 15 minutes you can have that potato that would normally take an hour and a half and it tastes just as good as ones baked in the oven.

4 medium sized russet potatoes
4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
¼ cup fat free sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Green onions, chopped (optional)

With a fork, poke holes in your potatos. Place them on a microwave safe plate and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Flip the potatoes over and microwave for another 5 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the microwave and allow them to cool enough so that you can handle them (Or be impatiently like me and burn your fingertips).

Cut the poatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the flesh leaving about a quarter inch shell. Place flesh in a bowl and add sour cream, 3/4 cup cheese, bacon, and green onions (if desired). Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese over the top of potatoes. Microwave for another 2 minutes.
