  1. Slice potatoes lengthwise.
  2. Lay out on a microwave plate, skins down. Carve a vertical line about halfway through the potato. This helps it cook even and is not necessary for smaller or thinner potato strips. You could also carve an X shape instead.
  3. Microwave on HIGH for 10 Minutes.
  4. Take out of microwave and if you want to, spread out margarine or butter thinly over the potatoes. Top each potato with a good handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with Bacos.
  5. Microwave on high an additional 2 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
  6. Let potatoes sit for a few minutes. They are usually extremely HOT. Also, be careful handling the plate. After they have cooled, salt to taste and enjoy!
