They are also low in calories and very filling (not to mention cheap). I don't eat them everyday, but I do use them for quick meals and to fill the occasional hunger void I am feeling.
A a while ago I posted a recipe for a soup with beans and corn (Taco Soup). I will often micro - bake a small potato (2 pts) and cover it with a cup of the heated taco soup (1 pt). This is a good lunch or quick dinner on the run that fills me up and stays with me!
Scrub the potato (because you will want to eat the skin).
- Poke through the skin in a few places.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Place potato in microwave and cook on high for 3 1/2 minutes.
- Place potato in oven and cook for 7 - 10 minutes in the center rack.
- Slit open and enjoy.
