These wedges taste like baked potatoes but are faster to make because they cook in the microwave. The simple seasoning makes them crispy and golden.—Dorothy Umberger, Ceres, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt or salt-free seasoning blend
  • 1 unpeeled medium baking potato
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Combine the first four ingredients on a microwave-safe plate. Cut potato lengthwise into eight wedges. Coat wedges in the seasoning mixture; arrange on the same plate. Cover and cook on high for 4-6 minutes or until tender, turning wedges once. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Editor's Note: Potatoes may be prepared in a conventional oven. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 25 minutes or until tender.
