I think I have found the greatest invention ever, the microwave baked potato bag by My Carrie Creations Etsy Shop. I tried out the bag and put 4 washed small red potatoes in it (no need to prick holes in the potato) then you just lay the bag flat in the microwave, 8 minutes later I had amazing fluffy baked potatoes, which is a far cry from waiting forever for them to bake in the oven. This is perfect for me because I am not a meal planner and was able to bake these potatoes on a moments notice. The whole family enjoyed them and I was so happy to have a new tool in the kitchen to make my life easier (in fact I made them again the following night).
The microwave potato baking bag is 100% cotton and the approximate size is 9″x9″ and holds 4 medium/small or 2 large potatoes (cooking instructions are included). The bag is made extremely well with attention to detail. The fabric is a beautiful purple paisley pattern and is quilted to avoid any batting from shifting. The bag can be machine washed and hung to dry, talk about easy (and it looked just as perfect as when I got it). This bag is available at My Carrie Creations Etsy shop for $6.50 and comes in a variety of patterns and colors. What a great affordable gift for that special someone who has everything!
