Easy side dish recipe- Parmesan Potatoes

These tasty, cheesy potatoes are lightning fast and your family will love them! To make them even faster, use a package of "Simply Potatoes" (slices, wedges or diced) and eliminate the slicing and dicing. These terrific supermarket shortcuts are usually in the meat or dairy case of your store.

Parmesan Potatoes

2 tablespoons margarine or butter
6 butter-flavored crackers (like Ritz), crushed
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 large potato, unpeeled and thinly sliced or cut into cubes

Place margarine in a 1-cup microwave-safe glass measure; microwave, uncovered, at HIGH 45 seconds, or until melted. Combine melted margarine, crushed crackers, cheese, garlic powder, salt, paprika and pepper in a gallon-sized zipper baggie; add potatoes and shake bag to coat. Arrange coated potatoes in a 9-inch microwave-safe pie plate, sprinkle with any remaining crumb mixture. Cover with wax paper and microwave on HIGH 4 to 5 minutes, or until potatoes are tender, rotating pie plate a half-turn after 2 minutes.
