Cheddar Potatoes and Onions

Yield 4 cups (serving size: 1 cup)
Vidalia onions add the best flavor in this recipe, but Walla Wallas also work nicely. I serve this easy-to-make dish with beef, poultry, or fish.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound small red potatoes
  • 1 medium Vidalia or other sweet onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at high for 5 to 6 minutes, turning once. Let stand 1 minute. Cut potatoes lengthwise into quarters. Place potatoes and onion wedges in an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat tops of vegetables with cooking spray, and sprinkle evenly with lemon pepper and salt. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; cook an additional 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
