Wash the potatoes well and prick the skins all over with a fork. Line the glass platter of the microwave oven with paper towelling and arrange the potatoes in a circle on top. Microwave for 5-6 minutes on 100 per cent power, turn and microwave for another 5-6 minutes on 100 per cent power. Cut a cross in each potato and press the potato at the bottom to open it up slightly. Remove a little of the potato flesh and mix with a little butter and season to taste with salt. Mix the potato flesh with the mushrooms and return to the potato hollows. Microwave till the filling ingredients are just warm. OR pour a little sour cream over the potatoes, top with pieces of sausage and tomato and season to taste with salt and pepper. Alternatively, mix grated Cheddar cheese and mustard powder with the potato flesh, spoon the mixture into the potato hollows and microwave till warm. Serves 4.
