Excellent recipe, I did bake the potatoes in the oven though because they always shrivel little in the microwave.

After microwaving potatoes, cut in half, scoop out pulp leaving a thin layer. Mash the pulp with marg. and milk, whipping until smooth. Spoon back in potatoe halves. Then top each potato with 3 tbsp. of butter mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
