  1. this seems easy so i will try it one time!

  2. It is SO easy. The only real pain in the ass thing is waiting for the potatoes to cool once they're out of the microwave. But, if you serve this as a side, you can do something else with your other dish while you're waiting. Heating up the potatoes was the first thing I did.
