Lunchbox Cheesy Potatoes

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by IngridH

When I have fingerling potatoes, or tiny red potatoes, I like to make this as a lunch side dish. Typically, I make this in the morning, let cool while I get ready for work, and pack just before stepping out the door. The key to making this fast is cutting the potatoes very small- no larger than bite sized pieces.

Made a triple batch with fingerling potatoes, quartered, then steamed & finally seasoned with the Parmesan cheese & some lemon pepper! Served them up as finger food (well, actually with toothpicks, but then . . . ) & they were great! Definitely something I want to add to my next company-oriented finger food buffet! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday recipe tag]
