These are great for a change-of-pace side dish. I like to make them with thyme.

I tried these last night, they were pretty good. The presentation was fancy, I've never sliced my baked potato this way before. I used a mixture of dried parsley and thyme because that's all I had, but I would like to have had chives. The cooking time was perfect, and I reccomend using fresh grated parmesan for the topping. Nice side dish. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel potatoes if the skin is tough, otherwise, just rinse and pat dry.
  2. Cut potatoes into thin slices, but not all the way through. (A clever trick for doing this is to place your potato between two table knives--the knives will stop your cutting blade at an even level across potato).
  3. Place potatoes in a microwave safe dish or pan.
  4. Sprinkle with melted butter and chopped herbs--getting it down between slices.
  5. Microwave for 10 minutes, rearranging potatoes after 5 minutes.
  6. Check doneness and cook a bit more if necessary until potatoes are nearly done.
  7. Sprinkle with grated cheese and Parmesan cheese.
  8. Microwave for another 4 to 6 minutes until cheeses are melted and potatoes are soft.
