A new twist on the “baked” potato. Fingerling potatoes cooked in the microwave then topped with butter, cheddar cheese and green onions make a quick, delicious, and elegant side dish. Add a dollop of sour cream to make them even more rich.
Cheddar Fingerling Potatoes
- 1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- kosher salt to taste
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 green onions, chopped (optional)
Pierce potatoes with a fork once or twice each, then place in microwave and cook until the consistency of a baked potato – approximately 5 minutes, turning over halfway through cooking time.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and spread butter over. Season with salt, then sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Serve while hot.
