    How to make Microwave Baked Potato With Chunky Tomato Sauce?

    1) Wash the potatoes and pat dry them. Gently rub butter on the potatoes and poke them all over with a fork. Please remember puncturing the potato is necessary so that the steam can escape without the potato exploding. Always puncture a potato in multiple places before putting it in the microwave!

    2) Season the potatoes with salt and pepper, as per taste.

    3) Place in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes, then flip and then cook for another 2 minutes.

    4) Heat butter in a pan and add garlic to it. Then add onions and cook until golden brown.

    5) Add the tomatoes and tomato puree and cook it down till the consistency is like a sauce.

    6) Add the basil leaves, salt, and pepper.

    7) Finally, peel open the skin of the potatoes and garnish with the tomato sauce, sour cream, and chopped parsley.


    Expert Tips

    Please refer to the below mentioned baked potato toppings and combinations that can be used:

    1) Classic - Classics are classic for a reason. Standard toppings usually include butter, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and oftentimes, crumbled bacon and chives.

    2) Cheese - Of course some good old fashioned cheddar cheese is always good, but you can dabble with different cheeses as well! Gouda cheese is a personal favorite!

    3) Veggies - Load your potato with some sauteed veggies. A veggie spud is always filling and nutritious!

    4) Mexican - Add some pico de gallo, corn, and black beans. You can even throw in a little guacamole, salsa, or sour cream!

    3) Broccoli & Cheese - Top your potato with some tender steamed broccoli and ooey, gooey cheese sauce!

    3) BBQ Brisket - Toss some brisket in your favorite BBQ sauce and add a hefty mound right on top of your potato. I like to throw in some sauteed onions for good measure.
