If you're tired of the same old side dishes night after night, these Spiral Baked Potatoes are just what you need to create something new and interesting!
What You'll Need
- 4 medium potatoes, washed
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel (optional)
What to Do
- Place 2 wooden spoons parallel to one another on a work surface and place a potato lengthwise between the handles. Make at least 8 crosswise slits three-quarters of the wat through the potato, stopping each time the knife hits the spoon handles. Repeat with the remaining potatoes, and place them in a microwave-safe 7 x 11 baking dish.
- In a small bowl, combine the butter and lemon juice. Microwave at 90% power for 40 to 50 seconds, or until the butter is melted. Brush the butter mixture over the potatoes and between the slices. Microwave at 100% power for 6 minutes.
- Brush the potatoes again with any butter mixture from the bottom of the baking dish. Microwave at 100% power for 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender. (NOTE: Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your potatoes.)
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well and sprinkle over the potatoes and between the slices. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
