Cheddar Potatoes and Onions

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


From the October 1996 Cooking Light, these easy potatoes are a family favorite.

This recipe uses the microwave first to partially cook your potatoes so that the baking goes faster. You may need to nuke them a little longer depending how large they are.
