Almost every household has a microwave – an appliance that’s a real favorite. But besides rapid warming and thawing, the microwave oven can also cook. Here are some ideas:

A slice of bread with butter, a slice of ham, a slice of tomato, cheese and savory placed for two minutes in the microwave can sometimes be a substitute for pizza.

Another idea is whole roasted potatoes with salt and cheese. Wash several smaller potatoes. With the peels on, place them in a bowl with plenty of salt. Poke them with a fork and bake for about ten minutes in the microwave, while exposing both sides. After removing them, peel and cut them in half. Put cheese on top and bake some more.
