Recipes for Microwave - Week 4 March 2013

With the summer heat on it's way, I thought we could post good microwave recipes.

Baked Potato with Thyme Cheese Sauce

Here's a weird-sounding but quick, easy, and delicious idea that I use for any meal, breakfast to supper. I got the idea from a cheese-sauce recipe in a book on landscaping with herbs that I was given about 15 years ago and can no longer find. Mairi Meredith

1 potato
Salt and pepper
Shredded cheddar or Colby cheese
Dried thyme

Pierce the potato and microwave until soft, usually 3-6 minutes. Open it up, butter and salt and pepper it, then top with a generous handful of shredded cheese. Crumble a generous pinch of thyme between your fingers and sprinkle over the cheese, then drizzle with the honey. (Trust me!) Microwave for another minute to a minute and a half, until the cheese is melted, and enjoy! This smells so good that I recommend going out for a stroll after the meal, then coming back in to enjoy the fragrance.
