The final Tastemaker 2k10 challenge is 'Nutrition in a Time Crunch' and I knew immediately that I was going to do a potato bar. I know, you are thinking that Baked Potatoes take a long time in the oven, and that is true, but they only take 8-10 minutes in the microwave oven. You can either use the steaming bags on the market or place a few in a large bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. And do not poke the potatoes first as you are releasing the steam out of the potato.
While the potatoes are cooking, you can toss the toppings on the counter and be done in a few minutes. You can go super quick and simple or put a bit more time into it. Here are some suggestions. Oh, and PLEASE watch the video and RATE IT.
