A quick and easy way to make a side of potatoes. My family really enjoys these.


  1. In a microwave-safe dish, add potatoes and toss with butter to coat.
  2. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt and pepper and toss.
  3. Cover and microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  4. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley.

Delicious. I used a little black pepper, a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash and some hot pepper flakes instead of the seasoning salt and parsley. Thank you for posting! 2/6/10 I made this again and left the skins on the potatoes and put chunks of colby/jack cheese on after taking out of the microwave. I let the cheese melt over the potatoes. Yum!

Ooohhhh...I really liked these! I was in a crunch at dinner time and ran late in getting started cooking and realized there was no way I could make the potato recipe I had planned on making without running dinner WAY behind. I found this one and the potatoes were done in a flash! I did add a lot of seasoning before cooking. I added garlic bread sprinkle, garli garni and crushed red peppers. I also used regular salt and black pepper. I followed a previous reviewers advice and cooked this about 6 minutes before adding the parmesan and then I cooked it 2 additional minutes. These don't look like pan browned or pan baked potatoes. So if that bothers you...this isn't the recipe for you. I found they were cooked perfectly and the flavor was wonderful. Simple, healthy, tasty side dish you can make in a flash. A true winner with me! Thank you for posting!

These potatoes are great. Great buttery taste. And very easy to do. I'll do them again when I need a potato dish that is done in just a few minutes. Thanks Bonnette :) Made for PAC Spring 2011
