Recipe Notes

*Use leftover baked potatoes or pierce your potato several times and microwave for 4-5 minutes. The size of potato and power of your microwave will make cooking time vary greatly, please keep an eye out while it cooks! *Hot potatoes tend to work better. If you are using leftovers, scoop out the potato and heat in the microwave before mashing.
