I needed a quick recipe for some cheesy potatoes to go w/ our charcoal cheeseburgers, and these were perfect. They actually were done before the burgers!! I added an extra potato but ended up with leftovers, so the suggested amount would have been perfect. And no one could believe they came from the microwave. It was delicious!! I added some pepper, garlic salt, and minced onion to spice it up a bit. Thanks for posting!!
