Parmesan Potatoes



Of all the root crops, potatoes are my family's favorite. Next time you are looking for an easy potato side dish, consider making my Parmesan Potatoes.

Parmesan Potatoes
--1 medium-sized baking potato for each family member
--2 TBSP butter (or low-fat margarine)
--1/4 tsp dried oregano or thyme
--1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
--sprinkling of paprika

Scrub potatoes clean and cut in half lengthwise. In a microwave-safe pie plate, melt butter (about 30 seconds on high). Dip cut-side of potatoes in butter and then arrange in the pie plate with the cut-side up. Sprinkle with oregano, Parmesan cheese and paprika. Microwave on high for 10 to 13 minutes, depending on size of potatoes. Rotate pie plate once or twice during cooking time. When potatoes are done, you should be able to easily pierce them with a fork. Enjoy!

This looks like a really yummy recipe. I do a similar one in the oven, but I think with the summer heat, I'll have to try your microwave version - it won't bake the whole house! :-)

I love anything potato and my husband just might eat these since they are cheesy. Does the cheese get crispy in the microwave? He would really like that!

Bobbi said...

Sissy: Yes, the cheese does get crispy in the microwave.
