Microwave Potato Wedges

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

    1 serving


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt or salt-free seasoning blend

  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

    Easy to prepare, but I think they would have been better with butter instead of the oil.

    This was quick and easy and tasty. I cooked mine for a little over 7 minutes and they were more than done enough.
