office potato – clothes free kitchen

One of my favorite new breakfast items of the office is potatoes. They are quite low in cost, and I can bring them to work and simply cook them in the microwave there. Any potato can come to the office. In this recipe, I used a red potato.

Place the wrapped potato in the microwave. In some microwaves, you might be able to simply elect a cook potato option, through which the microwave creates its own timer and cooks the potato until completion. Otherwise, about 5-7 minutes, depending on the size. Heat it until you can poke a fork through it easily.

Remove from the microwave, unwrap and place on a plate or in a bowl (I prefer a bowl). Slice and smash with knife and fork. Lately, I like to leave the skin on, because that’s less work. Also, I have learned that there are nutrients in and just below the skin.

This simple breakfast leaves me feeling satisfied and energized without feeling overburdened in the belly.
