Cheesy Baked Red PotatoesPrintable Recipe
Ingredients (per potato):
1 red potato
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
pinch of salt and black pepper
(optional) pinch of garlic salt
1 tablespoon cheddar or mexican blend cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Slice the potatoes carefully about 3/4th of the way (For me, using a sharp steak knife worked best!). Place the potatoes on a plate and cover with a plastic wrap and microwave on high for about 8 minutes or until the potatoes have softened.
Drizzle olive oil over each potatoes. Season each potatoes with paprika, black pepper, salt, and garlic salt. Sprinkle cheese on top of each potatoes.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for about 20-23 minutes or until the potato skins are crispy. Sprinkle chopped cilantro leaves over the baked potatoes.
