I really enjoy potatoes as a side dish.  Over the years I have come up with some short cuts to speed up the cooking process. Not to mention, cut down on prep time.

Some of my tricks are to throw a few potatoes into the oven whenever I have it on.  Just because you cooked it today doesn’t mean you have to eat it today.  This trick works really well with twice baked potatoes.   If I find myself with out a cooked potato in the fridge, I simply throw a few into the microwave for a few minutes to get them partially cooked through.

What You Need:

3 Red Potatoes

1 Tablespoon Cajun Seasoning

1/2 Tablespoon Butter

What To Do:

Wash and dry the potatoes.  Slit each potato and place in the microwave for about 3 minutes.  Remove the potatoes and let rest until they are cool enough to handle.  Cut the potatoes into cubes and sprinkle with cajun seasoning.  Heat the butter in a non-stick pan.  Add the and fry until golden brown on at least one side.
